Nicholas Lopez explored semiconductors and physics in his undergraduate research, participated in national conferences and completed internships with Texas Instruments in Santa Clara, California. Now a graduate student in computer engineering, he is focusing his thesis on cybersecurity and the Internet of Things by researching differential privacy across different sectors, including location privacy, healthcare and accessibility. From the support of his professors and peers to the assistance he received from UTEP’s Career Center, Lopez’s experience at UTEP will allow him to take his career to the next level.
Computer engineering graduates pursue career opportunities with companies such as Texas Instruments, Raytheon Technologies, Intel, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, IBM, NASA, Blue Origin, national laboratories and more. Graduates also are being recruited in finance, health and other sectors that depend on computing technology for their operations.
