Andy Meilien ’07
Web Designer and Developer, Environmental Data Resources (EDR)
I interviewed, the people here were really impressed with my broad range of
multimedia skills, plus the humanities, writing and math background that RPI
also afforded me. I had enough experience to be able to jump into a job
that required some specialization in an area that wasn't my concentration and
grow those skills significantly, while still taking advantage of other types of
multimedia for side projects.
Animation (the current concentrations were defined later)
The job that I still have 3-1/2 years later never was directly related to my concentration, but I made use of all the multimedia software that I learned in the EMAC program. I evolved into more of a web designer/developer with this job, and for a while now I've been helping develop online mapping applications for EDR (Environmental Data Resources, Inc.), an environmental due-diligence company in Milford, CT.
