The NASA contractor earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Toledo through Lorain County Community College’s University Partnership in 2009.

{mosimage}As an engineer for Zin Technologies, Novick, 27, is contracted by NASA to work on projects related to long-term space flight. His projects primarily involve the International Space Station. Prior to earning a bachelor’s degree, he also earned an Associate of Science degree from LCCC. Through the University Partnership program, Novick was able to earn both degrees on the LCCC campus.

"Attending LCCC and earning a bachelor’s degree through the UP made the most sense for me," Novick said. "Being able to do my entire bachelor’s degree without having to move was a big deal to me."

By taking classes through the University Partnership, Novick was able to stay local and continue to work while he earned a degree. He also enjoyed the affordable cost of education at LCCC and the UP.

"If not for LCCC, I would have paid a lot more to earn the same degree at another college," he said.

Class size was also important for Novick, especially as he navigated through the coursework required in the computer science and engineering field.

"The manageable class size helped make some of the more trying classes, like Automa and Data Communications, easier to deal with," he said.

He also attributes his success to the faculty involved in the University Partnership program.

"The faculty members were always very willing to help and spend the time needed to ensure we all understood what they were trying to teach us," he said. "I feel very fortunate to have had some of the professors that I did through the UP."

As a University Partnership alumnus, Novick is an advocate for the programs offered.

"If I had it to do all over again, there is no doubt that I would choose LCCC and the UP again," he said.
