Software engineering at Stanford College

Solomon’s path to becoming an MIT professor began with an early interest in computer graphics.

He had the opportunity to intern at a research lab outside of Washington, where he helped develop algorithms for 3D face recognition as a math-minded high school student from northern Virginia.

That experience roused him to twofold study math and software engineering at Stanford College, and he showed up nearby quick to plunge into more examination projects. As a first-year student, he recalls rushing to the campus career fair and negotiating a summer internship at Pixar Animation Studios.
