Message From Leadership

Ali Khamesipour, Ph.D., Assistant Professor/Program Manager

Here, I would like to emphasize success. It is a well-known fact called the Protege Effect that mentoring or teaching someone a topic is the best way to learn it. The value of sharing information and knowledge is well-established in the technology fields. We have fostered our team projects to help provide this type of opportunity to all our students. The main goal at STC is to share knowledge with our community through the different events and activities arranged through the student clubs. Our skillful and dedicated TAs and students play a vital role in reaching this goal.  

Ultimately, I would like to thank all our outstanding community members for making the ecosystem a better place through persistent and continuous improvements every day. John Wooden, the UCLA Legendary basketball coach, once said: “Big things are accomplished only through the perfection of minor details.”
