Cox's graphics work moves the world forward

Perry Cox finishes what he starts.

After creating an outreach presentation for high school students interested in Purdue's College of Technology as the capstone for his bachelor's degree in computer graphics technology (CGT), Perry chose to continue his studies — and his outreach — with a master's degree in the program.

"I felt the additional training I'd receive would give me an edge in my career," he says, "and I'm using my thesis to improve the work I began as an undergrad."
