Our Engineering program is definitely challenging, but Computer Engineering major Cara Sperbeck ’18 (Gaithersburg, MD) took the challenges in stride and garnered numerous accolades and awards. Prior to her freshman year, she was awarded the York American Constitutional Freedom Scholarship and then twice received a Society of Women Engineers Scholarship. She also received a General Dynamics Information Technology Scholarship, the Engineering Society of York Award, and was inducted into the Alpha Chi National Honor Society. She was involved in the Senior National Honor Society as well as the Collegiate Engineering Society.
Sperbeck has accepted a full-time job at Systems & Technology Research, a small business focused on technology for defense, intelligence, and homeland security needs in Arlington, Virginia, where she will focus on maritime and signal processing applications. She will also attend Johns Hopkins University next fall, where she will pursue a Master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. “The Engineering program at YCP is really strong,” she said. “I’m definitely prepared to work in the real world, due to my many co-ops and lab experiences.”
