|Lewis University alumnus shares career success story with computer science students
Published: December 4, 2012.
Art Scheuber, a 1981 alumnus of Lewis University’s Computer Science program, recently returned to his alma mater to discuss the benefits of studying computer science. Scheuber shared his career success story, as well as the valuable things he learned as a computer scientist and Lewis University student.
Scheuber is currently the vice-president for administration at Marquette University, where he has worked since 1996. In his role as an administrator in charge of a broad set of services and programs at the university, Scheuber has used his keen problem-solving ability to tackle many complex issues including those related to student safety, sustainability and telecommunications. Scheuber urged students to overcome their challenges and highlighted the importance of problem-solving skills in the computer science field.
“Art Scheuber’s presentation was very inspiring for our students. He gave students some valuable advice on having successful careers in the computer science field. It was great to have him back at Lewis to share his wealth of experiences,” commented Dr. Ray Klump, chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science department.
Lewis University offers bachelors’ degrees in Computer Science with areas of specialization in Computer and Network Security, Video Game Development, Distributed and Mobile Computing Technologies and Simulation of Scientific Systems. Many Lewis Computer Science students pursue internships in the field as students, and several alumni have gone on to found and lead area technology firms. Over its 40-year history, the Computer Science program has undergone continuous improvement and refinement to keep pace with changes in technology. It recently opened four new labs, including the Ubiquitous Computing Lab to teach students how to program mobile and embedded devices, and the Networking and Security Lab to equip students to work on the front lines of cyber defense. The department is currently working on new offerings in cloud computing and data mining.
