Why did you choose CCT? I chose CCT because it provided classes and opportunities in the various areas I am interested in. I like to think of it as a program for students who consider themselves a jack of all trades.
What surprised you about CCT? I was surprised by the endless possibilities and the speed at which CCT helps you accomplish your wildest ideas. I came in with an inkling of what I was interested in studying and now, I am sprinting down a path that I would not have expected at all! Through CCT, I’ve learned the principles of design and how to conduct market research, design user-friendly applications, run data analytics, code machine-learning algorithms and launch new products. Now, I am designing and building my own application. I truly did not expect to learn and accomplish so much in so little time!
