Samuel de Oliveira '23

Samuel de Oliveira graduated from Florida Poly with a master's in computer science in 2023. 

Oliveira earned his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from a large public university in Florida. After working in the electrical and mechanical engineering labs at Florida Poly, he decided to pursue his master's in computer science to expand his knowledge and expertise. The smaller campus experience at Florida Poly provided a more hands-on and collaborative environment. 

"At Florida Poly, you felt like you could actually get involved in projects you were interested in and really collaborate with other people," said Samuel de Oliveira. "I think that everybody forms a very tight knit group here. There's actually a much better collaborative environment here at Florida Poly than what you would get elsewhere."
