Where Are They Now?

CS Department Site Image Edward J. McLaughlin III originally enrolled at Villanova University within the college of Commerce and Finance. Halfway through his freshman year, he discovered that he had a strong interest in Computer Science. After speaking briefly over the phone with Dr. Beck, he immediately decided to enroll within the program. Throughout his tenure within the department of Computer Science, he took several courses that not only exposed him to the many facets of computing, but they also gave him the opportunity to choose his direction professionally. Originally, he was a consultant working with Oracle Database systems, but after having the opportunity to build custom web based applications, he focused on complete web based application solutions. Throughout the past 14 years, he has worked as a software engineer designing applications from the database level up through to the client level. He has worked for private corporations and Fortune 50 companies such as Walgreens. Today, after developing applications for so many years, he is now a Principal Solution Architect for Comcast in Center City, Philadelphia. He is responsible for not only designing responsive client facing applications (web and mobile based), but for guiding development teams as a mentor and guide to ensure efficient and robust applications.
