The featured student this week is Simon Boka, a computer engineering major from Knoxville, Tennessee. He worked as a co-op student at OSIsoft, LLC in Johnson City, TN.
Boka worked specifically with the interface testing team. His main assignment was to perform tests on different interfaces to automatically check a specific interface feature. He also got the opportunity to participate in a company-wide “Visual Hackathon”, that provided him the opportunity to learn new programming skills.
According to Simon, “The most valuable benefit I received during my co-op is that I have a better view of what to expect when I get out of school. Also, I learned to refine academics skills to fit the company standards and I am more open to the spirit of teamwork.”
