    Additional education in high level and management skills were included, such as corporate communications, ethics, problem-solving, as well as teamwork and project management. Also addressed in greater detail were specific development considerations such as cost containment, reliability, feasibility studies, code maintenance and reliability. Owing to community involvement at B.U., I was fortunate to interact with and learn from people already working in scientific, business environs, and education, engineering and industrial settings in order to gain insight into the nature of their work, and as preparation for my own entry into the field of software development upon graduation. From that experience, I was able to identify my preferences, realizing also that any of those would provide a satisfying career opportunity, for differing reasons, and am excited to begin work.
