Five NNMC students, Sergio Cordova, Edgar Ronquillo, Eliza Espinoza, Jesse Atkinson and Laura Romero, presented posters at the New Mexico Alliance for Participation (AMP) Conference in Las Cruces, NM at NMSU. Northern students competed against over 90 students from universities across the state including UNM, NMSU and NMT.
Edgar Ronquillo placed second for his poster about monitoring and mapping the network at Northern New Mexico College for bandwidth consumption, congestion areas and peak hours. His project was mentored by Engineering professor, Dr. Jorge Crichigno.
"Being able to monitor and diagnose congestion and attack areas are essential to maximizing network efficiency," Ronquillo said.
Ronquillo is a senior majoring in Northern's Information Engineering Technology program and will be graduating in December, 2015. He also serves as treasurer of Northern's Student Senate and is already working in his chosen field.
"Currently I am employed at LANL. and plan to continue working there part time after graduation," Ronquillo said. "I will also continue for my Master's here at Northern in the Post-baccalaureate Certificate program for Information Engineering Technology. Then I will go to UNM for another year or so to receive my Masters in Computer Engineering."
Congratulations to all of Northern's presenting students and faculty mentors.
