Computer Programmer Analyst - T127
Graduated 2004
 

cet_Margi_JoshiAfter completing her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics & Physics, Margi Joshi was looking for a hands on computer science program so she decided to enrol in George Brown College’s two year Computer Programmer/Analyst program.

"I always was interested in the field of science, analysis and computers.  So, it wasn’t a surprise that I got into computers with my science background", says Joshi.

Over the course of the two year program, Margi credits some amazing professors who helped shape her career into what it is now.  Starting out as a Junior Programmer, Margi has recently been promoted to Manager of Software Development at Gemma Communications.   She fondly recalls her time at George Brown making new friends, being a peer tutor and library assistant and getting great career advice from professors. 

"Besides the IT skills, I learned the importance of teamwork and organizational skills that prepared me for my current job."

Her proudest achievement came at the end of her program when she was chosen as 2004 Class Valedictorian for the Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies. 

When asked about her current role, Margi states "There is never a dull day at work. A typical day at work would be frequently multi -tasking with different teams, projects and clients. There is always something new happening at my office."

As the IT industry is always evolving, Margi plans on keeping herself updated by getting further education in IT and in business, building on the strong foundation she received at George Brown.
