Nichole Mackey received her Master of Science in Computer Science in May 2019 from Michigan Technological University.

“I went into software engineering because I liked the versatility of it - technology is integrated into almost every aspect of our lives. I knew I wanted to apply my skill set in a way that would increase access to technology across populations, but what I didn't know was what area to pursue. GCSP challenged me to look at career opportunities in an “unconventional" way by searching for a need and finding a way to fill it. Working at Ford has allowed me to do that. Ford being a mobility company allows me to work on advancements that will further the way we get from point A to point B. My experience in GCSP has been invaluable and the knowledge and network I gained from the program is something I reflect on regularly. I want to ensure that each day I'm working towards a goal that is leading our world to an improved future.”
