Ashley DePottey ’09 Ashley DePottey graduated in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. She works at ERSI in southern California. “My experience at Tech, combined with the co-op experience I had at IBM, gave me a lot of the skills necessary to get a job. “The best part of the academic program is definitely the accessibility of the professors and opportunities to get help. College is a lot tougher than high school, and having professors that I could talk to and learning centers with walk-in hours made things a lot easier for me.”
