“As a Mathematics major at Tennessee Tech, I learned a great depth and breadth of mathematics. This was a very rewarding endeavor. Through my degree, I gained a great deal of skills and knowledge that I still use to this day. Along the way, I made multiple lifetime friends in the comradery of my coursework. I also dabbled in computer science courses.
“After realizing how much I enjoyed working on software, I sought an internship in the field. Before my senior year, I took an internship with NAVSEA as a software tester for radar simulations. After graduating with a math major and a minor in computer science, I started working for Dynetics, Inc. as a software developer.
“Today, I work as a software architect on hard-real-time hardware-in-the-loop radar simulations. These simulations, and the hardware they are coupled with, provide value to the intelligence community in understanding foreign radar assets," Riley Robinson.
