"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Competing as a team of 1 against teams of 3 student programmers, Lake Superior State University student Paul Carley of Sault Ste. Marie took third place at the eighth annual Northern Michigan University Programming Contest.

Carley, and 15 other LSSU students competed in the contest with four other universities and 24 teams total.

"We had 16 LSSU students that wanted to compete this year, so I made five teams of three and just put Paul on a team by himself," said Mark Terwilliger, Computer Science Professor, ."For him to finish third is a remarkable effort."

The first component of this project involved research. The manager of the hospital IT department had a variety of topics that need to be looked into in order to keep compliant with HIPPA. Some of the areas researched were cloud storage and computation, full disk encryption (both managed and unmanaged), thin clients and VMware Viewer implementations. The second component was aiding the staff of the IT department in mission-critical activities. Computers would be setup with software, updates, and user accounts, printers would be deployed, and equipment decommissioned.
