I am a Software Design Engineer in Test working at Concur in Bellevue, Washington. I did my MS in Computer and Information Sciences from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Software is a ubiquitous thing in the human world nowadays and my work is to test this software. As so many people use this world wide, we have to make sure that there are no "bugs" found in there. However, manually testing a software is a time consuming, tedious and error prone process, so we try to automate the testing. My work is to figure out which tests can be automated and then write programs that would run through the software like a human would and tell us if something is wrong. Unlike most of the things we use at all times, a software is not a tangible thing. You can see a computer, but you can't really see a software doing it's own work in the back end. That's why it is so exciting and fun to conjure up something from empty space and make it do everything on your command. That is the fun part of being an engineer!

    Hi Dr. Sayari. I'm a freshman in a community college and my major is not decided yet. I'm thinking about majoring in computer science. I know you didn't study computer science but I thought you would give me some advice. I have many concerns: I'm afraid that I'm not smart enough to study computer science, because as you know people who major in computer science are pretty smart. and I hear a lot about how hard it is and how only geniuses can study it so I'm really afraid that I might not be ...

    I am going to be a senior in the fall. My question is basically this: What is the best school that gets you a job after graduation? I assume internships play a huge role! Thanks!

    I'm thinking about pursuing a major in mechanical engineering or perhaps electrical engineering. I'm on my school's robotics team and I enjoy learning about how the robot works. However, I perform very poorly in algebra. I love geometry but, algebra just doesn't make much sense to me. I know I have the potential to do well; I'm worried that my professors may not be the best teachers or that I won't absorb enough to pass a math class. What do you think I should do? Should I forget about this and ...

    I can't tell you about the mechanical engineering major part because I majored in Computer Science, but I can tell you about the algebra vs. geometry thing from my personal experience. I loved geometry in school, always scored full marks in it. I loved ...
