Tanya - Software Engineering '12

TanyaTanya has always been interested in technology and how things work so when it came time to choose her education, enrolling in the Software Engineering program at Waterloo was a no brainer. Though choosing to study at Waterloo meant that she'd be moving from her home in India, she was excited about the opportunity to study in a reputable program, network with high-tech companies, and set up roots in Canada. With the help of the co-op program at Waterloo, Tanya was able to turn those opportunities into reality. While working in roles at Siemens, Scotia Capital, and Research in Motion, Tanya earned the experience and confidence she needed to succeed in her program. "I got a lot of hands-on experience with professionals in the industry. At the end of 5 years, I know what I want to be doing with my career." Currently, Tanya is working with Toronto-based company Intangent as a Software Consultant.
