For computing science graduand Jeremy Fell, his degree allowed him to travel while also gaining the skills to succeed in his future career. This month, he graduates with a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Computing Science.

During his degree, he co-authored a paper on privacy-preserving cryptography and won numerous awards, most recently receiving the Mark and Nancy Brooks Innovation Award. Despite this, the highlight of his degree was completing two separate international co-ops where he worked on research projects at two German Universities through the DAAD RISE program.

“My international co-op experiences were extremely rewarding and defining periods in my life. I was able to learn a lot, while working on interesting research projects,” says Fell.

While on these internships, he travelled Germany and neighboring countries during the weekends. He finished off his journey by backpacking around Western Europe and the Balkans.
