University of Pennsylvania
Hi, I'm Billy Clarke. I'm studying Computer Engineering at Penn. I'm in the Stage Crew of the Mask and Wig Club , Director of SPEC Sound , and Head Lighting Designer for Strictly Funk . After my freshman year, I traveled to Pajomel, Guatemala as part of the University of Pennsylvania's Engineers Without Borders Guatemala Implementation Team.
This semester, I will be TAing CIS 371: Computer Organization and Design . This is the advanced RTL hardware design class in the Computer Engineering and Computer Science curricula, and is revered as one of the most work-intensive classes in the major. By the end of the class, students will have implemented a RISC-like superscalar pipelined processor in Verilog, consistent with Penn's LC4 ISA.
I have worked at SMPL Technologies, an IT consultant focusing of financial services clients, for the past three summers. While there, I worked alongside senior engineers to configure and document client networks, and developed scripts to automate administrative tasks. I also earned my Cisco Certified Networking Associate certification, CSCO12451533.
