The Right Tools For Career Success

Monty Stratton, ’88 staff and alumnus

The computer science department specializes in degrees that emphasize software programming and development, problem solving, computer hardware, and operating systems. The aim of this department is to prepare students for professional careers in a constantly evolving field.

Monty Stratton’s degree in computer technology has done just that for him: “This degree has given me many wonderful career opportunities at GTE, East Allen County Schools, and Lutheran Hospital,” he says. Other program alumni have careers working for Parkview Hospital, Dana Corporation, Verizon, and Zimmer, just to name a few.

However, Stratton’s career path has led him back to right where he started: “After 23 years of being gone, I have circled back to work at IPFW,” he says. Stratton now works in the Information Technology Services department as the telephone specialist/security camera support technician.

To complete the circle even further? His wife and oldest son have also earned degrees from IPFW and enjoy great career successes of their own!
