ISAT opens up a wide range of employment and graduate study opportunities for program graduates. Recent ISAT graduates have become entrepreneurs and/or gone into engineering, consulting, politics, the Peace Corps, and teaching. ISAT graduates are technological problem solvers, good communicators, and life-long learners with extensive experience working together in collaborative environments. These attributes are in high demand and provide a framework to success in many career paths.
ISAT prepares students for success in these fields by providing hands-on opportunities to solve problems. In recent years, ISAT undergraduates have worked to:
Alleviate local environmental challenges, like river pollution and sustainable farming
Fight infectious disease and bioterrorism by conducting genetic research in the laboratory
Develop computer databases to solve practical problems, such as traffic congestion or parking
Solve energy problems by creating and using alternative fuels and energy sources, such as biodiesel and wind power
Create secure and accessible telecommunications mechanisms, such as acquiring real-time data from multiple sensors and organizing into one publicly available web site
Aid villagers in developing countries in implementing appropriate technological solutions, such as securing clean water sources
