Sergio Rodriguez began his Arizona State University journey in 2015 as an online student while in the U.S. Air Force. As an electronic warfare technician, he dreamt of a day when he would design the next generation of the systems he was entrusted with maintaining. To achieve this dream, Sergio chose ASU’s electrical engineering program for its excellent reputation and opportunities for veterans.

He is now attending ASU in person thanks to the Air Force’s Airman Scholarship & Commissioning Program. Since beginning to attend ASU in person, Sergio has gotten involved as an undergraduate researcher with the Imaging Lyceum at ASU. His lab work focuses on exploring image processing algorithms and machine learning techniques to enhance motion deblurring.

Sergio’s advice for students:

“Engineering is inherently difficult, so don’t make it any harder than it needs to be. What I mean by that is: Always be aware of your assignment deadlines, and do not allow yourself to get to the point where you are starting assignments hours before they are due. By working on your homework throughout the week, you will be forced to recall what you’ve previously learned multiple times, and this serves as a good study strategy.”
