Connor Trempe likes to understand how things work. It’s a trait that has served him well as a software engineer. He recognizes that each piece of code is vital in ensuring the entire program runs correctly and that the quality of the code directly correlates with the robustness of the software.
It was that mindset that drew him to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Pathway. Through the pathway, students can earn both their undergraduate and graduate degrees faster by taking some courses simultaneously. By enrolling in the pathway, Trempe said he was able to graduate with two degrees in just five years.
“Honestly, it was a big time and money saver for me,” Trempe said. “My (online) master’s only took me a year and a half, and my undergrad only took me three and a half years. The program really accelerated my growth and performance as a leader, both inside my organization and with my clients.”
