Jalyn Gilliam

Computer Science Student


I am currently enjoying my last semester as a Computer Science student at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am also currently searching for a career starting opportunity in software engineering as I anticipate graduating in December of 2018. In my free time I built my personal computer, but regularly I enjoy relaxing with friends or shooting photos in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

About the Project

My senior capstone project where a team and I developed a prototype tabletop mobile escape room for a local company.
