Anyone Graduating?
« on: May 14, 2010, 01:46 PM »
Just wondering if anyone else is graduating from any type of school this month, or next...

I just earmed my Master Degree in Science of Education!  Hooray!  It took 6 years part time, it was 54 credits and a ton of work.  But I'm done.  How about you?

Congratulations Mike, that's a great accomplishment!

I'm still plodding along in my Masters program.  I'm about 60% done and should be graduating this time 2012...  I'll try to find this thread again in a few years and update accordingly :P

Hey, I'm graduated from Pharmacy School in 1994!

Anyway, congrats to all the 2010 graduates!

I finished my Master's Degree in Space Operations Management from Embry-Riddle in December.  The graduation ceremony is next Saturday.

My last day of High School is May 26. Graduation is June 11. It has been a long four years and I'm looking forward to being done.

What kind of career does that prep you for?  Mission Control seems a bit too obvious.  I'm guessing something like a project manager with an aerospace company.  But then "operations" at my last job was the utility/infrastructure folks.

In the short term, it should help me get promoted to Major.  Post Air Force, it's a technical degree with a lot of Program Management in there as well so I should be able to find a good civilian job in the Space Field.  I had to take classes in Life Support, Space Operations, Remote Sensing, etc as well as management classes (liked the technical stuff better).

Just picked up my BA in Telecommunication Media Studies today yesterday. :D Finals ended on Wednesday and my ceremony was Friday (the ceremonies here are spread out through two days). Ironically my last semester was also my best semester, grade-wise, even though I had mad Senioritis and basically didn't give any effort.

So... anybody hiring?
