James Pockrandt

WiSys Ambassador | UW-Green Bay

My name is James Pockrandt. I am in my Senior year at the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay. I am Majoring in Computer Science with an emphasis on Software Engineering, while also dabbling in software security. I have research experience in the field of software security- particularly that of education. My focus there was introducing students to the need for secure coding in software development. I am looking forward to meeting others following Science, Engineering and Technology emphasis. Moreover, I hope to be able to help them achieve an impact on society through their ideas, research, or innovation. To quote Steve Jobs- “I want to put a ding in the universe.” I want to be able to help others reach that goal, and I foresee WiSys as an opportunity for these minds to achieve something great. I hope to learn more about the business side of invention. As a future software engineer, I’ll end up needing to handle cases- like those WiSys deals with regularly- efficiently. I intend to learn all I can about the patenting process, as well as proper marketing and more.
