Computer Science

Elise Dufour

Elise Dufour graduated from Merrimack College in 2009 with a major in Computer Science and minors in both Computer Engineering and French.  She came to Merrimack after graduating Bayview High School in Riverside, RI. She choose Merrimack College because of the small classes, wanting to get to know her professors, and because it was a Catholic College. Her favorite courses are Java and Computer Graphics, and she is looking forward to taking NetCentric Computing and Embedded Processor Design.  She has worked at the Navy Base in Newport, RI for the last two summers doing web development and looks forward to going back this summer to work on Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV). She also enjoys playing the flute, running, and has been on the tennis team since her sophomore year.  Since graduation, she now works for the U.S. Navy doing some really cool stuff she is not allowed to discuss. However, to quote Elise “I had a great couple weeks off after graduation but jumped right into my new job at the beginning of June and I absolutely love it. The work here is really interesting and some of the projects that I am working on are fairly new so the work is exciting.”
