From WCC to Thriving Career in IT

Christopher Aben

For some people, life is a straight line from high school to college to a career. Not so for many others, including Chris Aben. Aben attended Washtenaw Community College in 2005 but didn’t complete a degree. Aben’s life took many twists and turns before he returned to WCC in 2013 and earned an associate degree in computer science.

“I’ve been to a few different community colleges, and WCC was the model of how it should be done,” Aben said. “There were a lot of classes with hands-on work with actual equipment. Having that environment allowed me to excel going into the workforce.”

In 2018 and 2019, Aben enrolled in additional computer science classes at WCC. Those studies and relationships with the instructors led to a position as an IT contractor with Michigan Medicine in Ann Arbor. Eventually, Aben moved to a permanent position there.

WCC Trainer

WCC was a pipeline to employment, Aben said and gave him the confidence to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

“It gave me the foundation needed and pushed me to undertake the challenges that are technical in nature. Doing project-based classes allowed me to build a regimen and a strategy for completing classes for a bachelor’s degree.”

He later moved on to obtain a master’s degree in cybersecurity. He credits WCC with putting his education and career on track. He now works in IT at the University of Colorado Boulder. “WCC provided an affordable and quality educational option that allowed me to build a solid technical foundation.”
