Student Success

When Alexandria Segovia came to FIU, her GPA was below average. Through hard work and determination, she brought her GPA to a 3.56 and has become the first Internet of Things (IoT) graduate. She chose the new degree because it focuses on cybersecurity and she felt it prepared her for real-life product development. During her studies, Alexandria also worked for  Infosight, a cybersecurity firm. Hired to work on their website she transitioned to a solutions engineer position, alerting customers of unusual activity in their network security and using social engineering to evaluate companies’ security practices. In two semesters she will complete a second bachelor’s in electrical engineering and plans on joining the Navy reserves. Alexandria was also one of nine Worlds Ahead female engineering graduates of the spring 2019 semester.
