Michael Romios '05, Mechanical Engineering

"The Master’s Degree program at LMU offered me a variety of courses in areas that were a focus of mine, such as in materials science and mechanics, but also in ancillary topics that would come to help me in my career, such as in quality and program management. Alongside the full time LMU faculty, many of the graduate courses were taught by experienced professionals who brought their direct experiences from their long careers into the classroom. Most important of all for me was that many of the courses were scheduled at times that allowed me to continue working full time as an engineer while completing my Master’s Degree. All of these factors and more bring me pride in having received my Master’s Degree from LMU. Since graduating, I have had a long career as a Systems Engineer in the Aerospace Industry having gained experience in military and commercial projects. There is no doubt that my time at LMU was instrumental in preparing me for the rewarding career I have."
