Derek Watson

Position: ECE 2031 GTA
Degree Program (BS/MS, PhD, etc.): BS/MS
Expected Graduation: Spring, 2020

Derek Watson is in his second and final semester as a BS/MS student in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech. This is his fifth semester as a TA and second as a GTA for ECE 2031. His coursework is focused on computer software and networks, and he is constantly looking for projects that combine the two. In his free time he enjoys playing video games, watching basketball and sci-fi TV shows, and working on embedded electronics projects. His advice for 2031 students is to enjoy it while you can, because you will look back on this class later in life (either in two years while taking Senior Design or in 30 when you get promoted to engineering manager) and realize how important these concepts are.
