Hamza Mahmood

BAS in Information Technology: Cybersecurity and Networking

Graduates December 2022

After completing my education at Green River College, I earned my Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in IT cybersecurity in December 2022. I began my academic journey as an international student and was fortunate to form strong bonds with many exceptional individuals at GRC who became like a second family to me. Following my graduation, I transitioned into a role as an adjunct instructor for Information Technology at Midwestern Career College.

In this capacity, I had the privilege of designing and instructing my own courses, which attracted a diverse group of both international and domestic students. My experiences at GRC hold a special place in my heart and have been instrumental in shaping my career. As of now, I am honored to serve as a full-time Lead Instructor for IT, overseeing the Information Technology program at MCC. In this role, I have the opportunity to impart my knowledge and expertise to a wide array of exceptional students.

"I attended GRC not only for my AA degree prior to transferring to University of Washington (UW), but also for my BAS in Software Dev degree. The hybrid program at GRC allowed me to complete my double bachelor's degree in a cost-effective and time-efficient way, while I was also finishing up my Bachelors in Business degree at UW.
I recently stepped out of the corporate technology sectors and transitioned to a public-serving sector, now working as a Business Analyst at Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority. The hybrid program at GRC helped me stay versatile and diverse in my career choices, without necessarily sacrificing time and money, as traditional 4-year universities would require."

"I heard of Green River’s bachelor’s degree program in software development while I was pursuing my associate degree in IT at the college. I really enjoyed the small intimate classroom structure within the program. After a few programming classes I realized how much I liked writing applications and being able to manipulate web pages. Towards the end of my sophomore year I decided to pursue software development rather than networking because I found it systematic and gratifying"  - Read More

Graduates June 2022

"After I finished my associate degree at Green River College, I really wanted to continue with my Bachelor's. I love my teachers at Green River, I love my classmates, my on-campus jobs, and the assistance from International Programs. Some benefits I have experienced from this degree include: the lower tuition costs, the small class sizes up to 15 students, a hands-on applied learning experience even in 300 and 400 level classes, and preference, when I apply for jobs because of the brand name my program, has created throughout the years. I truly couldn’t feel more prepared to start working after I graduate."  - Read More.
