Lamonte Scott - Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering

When Lamonte Scott was a student at Grand Prairie High School he attended an event sponsored by Texas A&M University-Texarkana on his high-school campus. That event led to a curiosity about the university and eventually brought him to the university to take a campus tour. The rest, as they say, is history.

Lamonte Scott graduated from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree and currently works as a full-stack engineer for Thinaer, a leading provider of industrial IoT (internet of things) technology. Thinaer helps companies seamlessly integrate multiple aspects of their business to the internet to increase productivity and make a positive impact on the bottom line.

In his position Lamonte writes code and programs for both the client facing side of the website and applications and writes code for the back end (servers) as well. “I get to spend my days coding and programming,” said Scott. “I like that I’m not just stuck on one feature. I get to work on different things throughout the year. I’m learning all aspects of web development and always learning about the latest technology.”

His favorite part of the experience he had at A&M-Texarkana was the people. “The university really has a family-like feel to it,” said Scott. “It felt like a home away from home. I was able to meet a lot of people. I connected with them, and I learned from them as well.”

He also believes that his education prepared him very well for life after graduation. “The professors were wonderful and always willing to work with you if you needed help,” he commented. “Through my classes I was exposed to a lot of technology that prepared me well for what I’m doing now. There are also a lot of built-in programs to help you succeed, like the Success Center and the TRIO program,” he added.

He says he would encourage anyone considering A&M-Texarkana to visit the university and really get an understanding of how beneficial being on a smaller campus can be. Once enrolled, his advice would be to make connections with people and to take advantage of the many resources available to help ensure your success.
