Traditional Master’s

Jindu Okoli MS’18 came to the University of Texas at Dallas as an International student from Nigeria. She completed her undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering and earned an MS degree in Systems Engineering and Management with a concentration in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

“I have always been passionate about technology, hence the choice of a degree in Engineering. What I love about the Systems Engineering program is that it gives me different options when choosing a concentration. I also have the option of taking courses in other concentrations different from mine.”

“I currently work for Juniper Networks as a Systems Engineer where I interact with customers, understand their needs and provide solutions to those needs. The concepts I have learned in the SEM program have been very helpful in accomplishing tasks at my workplace.”  In her free time, Jindu loves listening to music and learning about new technologies.
