Friday, October 14, 3:30pm-4:30pm, in CMC 206.
Join the Computer Science program and the Career Center for a roundtable discussion with Jawad Khaki, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Corporation (and Friday's convocation speaker). Khaki will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the state of the field, what Microsoft is up to these days, what it's like to have a career in computer science, etc. From his bio: "Khaki grew up in rural Tanzania and was educated and trained as a computer engineer in London. He spent his early career as a hardware design engineer at GEC Computers Ltd. in Great Britain. In his 20s, he moved to the United States with his wife, two children, eight suitcases and five hundred dollars. Twenty years later, Khaki has over 700 patents filed under his management and he has contributed greatly to the development of Windows software, including the addition of dial-up and wireless networking and broadband infrastructure." Please join us for what will no doubt be an interesting and informative discussion! Refreshments will be served.
