As documented by DeAngelo Kelly

I am a tech enthusiast passionate about artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. With more than a decade’s experience in the tech industry, I have worked with several companies throughout my professional journey. Currently, I’m serving as Lam Research’s senior engineering technician LVL 3/R&D/safety ambassador chairman. I wanted to educate myself and contribute to my company’s newer demands, so I decided to upskill by enrolling in Simplilearn’s Artificial Intelligence Engineer Master’s Program

Thanks to Simplilearn’s flexible learning model, I completed the course successfully. The Artificial Intelligence Engineer Master’s Program made me more confident, and I have been able to apply all of the learnings to my work. The knowledge I gained from this course prompted me to volunteer for new projects at my company. I enjoyed learning with Simplilearn, and I have also recommended Simplilearn to my friends. My performance has improved, and I received recognition for new AI projects at my company. I also gained a 39 percent salary increase. In addition, I have volunteered at an education camp to help kids build robots. It gives me immense satisfaction to be able to improve my contributions to my job and my community. 

I don’t believe in compromising my aspirations and that one must keep working hard toward achieving their goals. 

Managing Time for Study

I knew it would be a challenge to manage work and learning. The flexible learning method helped me cope with my job simultaneously while studying. I took night shifts, worked out early in the morning, and studied. It was: go to work, go to the gym, and then study. I keep telling my friends and colleagues to take courses of their interest from Simplilearn. Simplilearn has been a game-changer; it has added a lot of perspective to my understanding of AI.

Improving My Skill Set 

When working in corporate America, you need to upskill and improve your skill set. The company I’m currently working with is moving towards AI, and I felt that if I gained additional knowledge about the field, I could make more meaningful contributions. I was interested in educating myself, and coding is another interest. I have always worked in the tech field, primarily in robotics. I am a respectful, hard-working professional with exemplary team management, communication, and critical thinking skills. I am an avid AI enthusiast and am very passionate about it. One of my first jobs was as a nuclear union journeyman at multiple companies. I have pursued other jobs, such as nuclear robotics field service tech/eddy current tech at Westinghouse Electric Company. I also worked as an artificial intelligence engineer at Mentor$chip. 

Pursuing Long-Term Goals

 Ultimately, I want to teach people AI, ML, and other related skills, and I feel a lot of people are unaware of them and need to be educated. I believe that one day, I will have my own company in the AI and Robotics domain. With my current knowledge and passion for AI, I don’t think I’m too far from this goal.
