Andy Collier

Andy Collier

I am a senior at San Jose State University majoring in Technology, focus electronics, set to graduate in Spring 2018 with a Bachelor of Science. Through my academic career, personal projects, and co-curricular activities at SJSU I have developed a broad set of skills in electronics design and application, programming in C, C++, and Assembly, drafting schematics with CAD software to then convert them into printed circuit boards, and testing and analyzing circuits. I am a two year member of the Electrical Engineering division for the SJSU Robotics team competing in the Mars Univeristy Rover Challenge giving me excellent hands on experience applying my knowledge on electronics to robotics. I also enjoy creating props, costumes, and displays utilizing electronics for myself, my family, and my friends for any number of occasions. Volunteering with Arduino has been a good learning experience as well as an all around enjoyable time!
