Jesse Faltus is completing the fourth year of his Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Computing Science in the Faculty of Applied Science. Although Jesse had a general interest in computers, he had no formal training in computing science prior to his arrival at SFU. Jesse picked up the basics from our introductory computing courses and discovered that he had a real talent for programming. Jesse enjoys the challenge his computing courses provide and feels that he’s gained solid problem solving skills along with the ability to look at problems from many different perspectives—skills that are invaluable in the workforce. Not intent on attending graduate school, Jesse’s dream is to be director of video game development with an established video game firm. With this aim in mind, Jesse has taken advantage of the co-operative education program and in his third year started his first co-op term as a desktop publishing specialist for SFU‘s school of Computing Science. ï»¿
Jesse’s second co-op term was with Electronic Arts, working with a development team on the new FIFA Street game as a software engineer.
Jesse has represented the School of Computing Science by participating in numerous university events at both the Burnaby and Surrey campuses such as Open House and Program Option days. For Jesse, maintaining a balanced lifestyle is important. Jesse is an avid mountain biker, rock climber, and weight lifter. On his days off, he also enjoys trail building, painting and playing the guitar.
