SYLVESTER TATE

Computer Engineering

My dad owned a small computer business, and I grew up around the tech side of things. I chose the Penn Computer Engineering program because I could pursue my interest in both hardware and software. I wouldn’t necessarily have to spend all my time coding; I could go to the lab and create circuits and hardware and that type of thing.
