What do some our alumni say about their education at HMC?

CJ Baumgart (’79)

I have had a great life since HMC, I have worked on everything from military to law enforcement to environmental analysis in the Amazon to farming software. I am most proud of my work in remote sensing combined with knowledge-based earth / terrain modeling. This work has led me all over the US, Europe, and South America. The thread of satellite imagery combined with GIS data and then pumped through human rules of expertise has spanned almost all of my projects. I couldn't have done this at all without a strong background in physics.

Valerie Nandor (’94)

The Wellington School
The career that I am looking toward right now is that of Prep. School teacher. I plan to obtain my Ph. D. in 2000. I think that in relation to my future job, the aspect of my education that impressed me the most is the quality of the teaching that goes on at Mudd.

Auburn University
I love teaching (but then, I learned from the best), and love my research - it's trying to do both all the time that I am finding taxing.

Physics majors can certainly go on to do all kinds of strange things, even public policy and international affairs:


Physics training has been an invaluable aid throughout my career despite my grade in quantum mechanics. : >
