Emmanuel

Emmanuel Reyme
B.S. in Computer Science

Why did you choose Computer Science as your major?
My interest in computer science started with a broken Xbox. Knowing the problem was software related, I used the resources available and begin researching possible solutions. I soon realized the solution to this small problem was beyond my scope. In order to understand the solutions surrounding the problem I decided to learn a programming language called Quick Basic at my high school. Learning Quick Basic gave me the ability to have complete control of my applications through code.

Tackett

Seth Tackett
B.S. in Safety Technology

Why did you choose Safety Technology as your major?
I was originally a Computer Science major and after I figured out it was mostly reading and writing code, I figured out that I couldn’t speak computer. Safety Technology was a way for me to stay within the college of Engineering and pursue a degree that I felt was challenging but rewarding. I didn’t realize how important safety was until I started doing research on OSHA and how it plays a role in our lives everyday. I figured if I can impact the workforce in some way then I’d be contributing to society to make it better.

Woods

Cadaris L. Woods
B.S. in Safety Technology

Why did you choose Safety Technology as your major?
I chose Safety Technology as my major because it is an ever-growing field that provides for a lasting and rewarding career. Marshall University’s Safety program is also accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). This means that the education provided through the program meets high standards of applied science, computing, engineering, and technology.

Fetty

Corey L. Fetty
B.S. in Safety Technology

Why did you choose Safety Technology as your major?
The initial reason I chose safety technology as my major is the vast amount of opportunities available. It is a degree that has so many opportunities and does not confine me to the same every day tasks from company to company. When working in safety you don’t have a daily routine, because the challenges and tasks are constantly changing, and I enjoy the varying challenges so I can continue developing and improving throughout my entire career.
