“During my time at SMC, I experienced in-depth research with much support from hands-on faculty members. Not only did my skills in research and development improve, but my ability to articulate and explain complex information and concepts at a high level flourished as well. The aforementioned skills have propelled me to where I am now as an Account Executive for one of the fastest growing tech Startups in Silicon Valley just one year post-graduation.” - Jacob Ricafrente, Class of 2021
