“We need someone with strong software engineering skills. You can get that through your course work, some of the projects your do, any outside work you have done with an internship or a co-op is always very helpful, especially if it is in the defense world.

“GPA is something we always take into consideration. Also, an internship or some projects, if you have a portfolio of some graphic design work you have done or you can show some of the things you have done, as far as software engineering goes, that is always very helpful.”
