Marcus Tyler


I am currently an Electrical Engineering undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin.  I will be graduating in December 2010, and am in the process of searching for a full time engineering position.  One of my primary goals in my career is to find meaningful work that allows me to exercise my creativity and connect with people.  My engineering interests include image and signal processing, software and algorithm development, acoustics, and electromagnetics.  I am also interested in music, and have been a musician and composer for about ten years.
