TIES 2017 Scholars

Brennon Farmer

CmpE – Scholar since 2017

My name is Brennon Farmer. I’m a third year transfer student from Albany State University. I was born in Albany, Georgia. During high school, I obtained an associate degree in Electronics Technology from Albany Technical College. Later, I decided to obtain a deeper understanding of the field which lead me to pursue a degree in Computer Engineering. I chose to transfer to Georgia Tech to have more exposure to opportunities like co-ops and research positions that can greatly expand my knowledge and experience in Computer Engineering. My hobbies include building electrical circuits for robotics, reading, and video gaming.

Alicia King

EE – Scholar since 2017

I grew up in Redford, MI, which is a suburb of Detroit, but I now live in Cartersville, GA. I am in the Dual-Degree Engineering Program between Berry College and Georgia Tech, which means I started at Berry and transferred to Georgia Tech, and will graduate with a degree from each school. I started Berry undecided, but once I decided to major in engineering, I knew that the Dual-Degree Program would be an amazing opportunity for me. In my spare time, I like to spend time with family and friends, volunteer when and where I can, and sing with the GT Women’s Chorus.


Tiffany Montgomery

CmpE – Scholar since 2017

I am a second-year Computer Engineering major, and I transferred from the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL. While I have had many opportunities to learn about programming, I am excited to learn more about electronics and I am especially looking forward to the opening of the Hive makerspace in the spring. I am currently a member of RoboJackets and I want to focus on robotics after I graduate.

Jose Sanchez-Rivera

EE – Scholar since 2017

My name is Jose Sanchez; I’m currently a junior at Georgia Tech, originally from Northwest Georgia. I served in the armed forces before beginning my collegiate education. I decided to attend Georgia Tech because of the intensity and difficulty of the courses offered at this institution. I pride myself in challenging myself to my full potential. Outside of school, I enjoy exploring the outdoors and hands on projects.
