How I, As A Network Security Student, Keep My Identity Protected

Posted on Oct 7, 2019 12:13:12 PM by Andrew Maddox in Network Security Degree, in cyber defense, in cyber attack, in cyber security degree, in cybersecurity

Many Network Security students and individuals in everyday life are concerned about identity protection and rightfully so. Trusted companies are breached every day and information is leaked. The legal aspect aside, it still happens and private information is still breached. This is one reason information should be monitored and watched over. Some of the resources for my identity protection I use are going to be listed below.

The UAT campus tour is all about highlighting what sets us apart from other universities. And what better way to learn about the campus than from a current student, a student ambassador. We have an outline of the areas we take you through, but each of us is unique and so are our experiences. Because of that each of us likes to include those experiences which make the tour unique as well.

What's it like in Space Exploration?

Posted on Aug 26, 2019 2:01:54 PM by Bailey Nielsen in college for nerds, in UAT Classes

The Space Exploration course is a Special Topic in Technology class offered here at the university. The overall goal of the class is for everyone to work together to go beyond their limits to create a functioning weather balloon payload. The course has been running for currently four semesters and each start with the same expectations of a successful weather balloon launch and a successful recovery. And so far, reality of each has been somewhat successful. With four missions we have failed to bring home two payloads and only had one failed launch, which was just delayed and successfully launch later.

Blended Strategies: My Time in Thinking Strategies

Posted on Aug 6, 2019 4:48:07 AM by Hakim Ottey in UAT Classes, in Blended Strategies

I loved many of the classes that I took here. The teachers are extremely sociable and the lessons are always made to be interesting! I gained something new from each class that I took, making my experiences in these classes to be amazing. So imagine how hard it was for me to have to choose one to be considered my favorite class! The first thing that came to mind was Introduction to Game Tools, since I was allowed to learn about the tools relevant to my industry and even create something unique in them. That is definitely up there on my list of favorite classes, but then I thought about how much I loved Composition, due to my love for writing and research. I had a lot of choices and it was a hard to choose one.In the end, the class that I choose to be my favorite ended up being Nathan Eskue’s TCH115 - Thinking Strategies!

Posted on Aug 1, 2019 9:25:19 AM by Jordan Brown in Game jam, in game design degree, in game devs, in game programming, in game development college, in game development portfolio, in Game Production

Over the weekend, I had the awesome experience of being able to participate in the UAT summer game jam. A game jam, for those of you who don’t know, is an event where teams are challenged to create a game with set restrictions in a short amount of time. For this game jam, we were given the theme “Abstract Art” and were given 48 hours to make a game around that theme!

My Awesome Classes This Semester

Posted on Jul 28, 2019 9:21:55 PM by Jordan Brown in UAT Classes, in Game Production

This semester here at UAT, I’ve had the opportunity to take some really cool classes. I’m now in my sixth semester, which means I’m taking some of the later courses in the average student timeline. This semester I got into some of the big ones like Game Production Studios (GAM281) and Student Innovation Project/Portfolio Presentation I (SIP401). Alongside those, I also took Technical Writing (ENG301), Communication in Technology (COM226), and my personal favorite, a very unique class called Game-a-Week: Rapid Prototyping (SPT323). I want to go a little bit more in depth, so I’m going to briefly talk about my experience with each of these classes to hopefully give you an idea of what you will learn when taking the courses.

What did you do during these instances?

A Memorable Moment: Interviewing University of Advancing Technology President Jason Pistillo

Posted on Jun 19, 2019 5:19:28 PM by Andrew Maddox in Advancing tech education, in technology leadership

Some can be nervous and intimidated while others are poised to learn and soak in the knowledge of great leaders. It was the latter that set me on a mission to meet with University of Advancing Technology President and CEO Jason Pistillo. First I had to figure out how to even contact the president of my university and how could I get an opportunity to soak in the knowledge and leadership skills straight from the source? I knew it had to be in person, not by email or by phone -- I also knew it was going to be a daunting task but I was determined to make it happen.
