Al's day usually begins by checking e-mail and then the queue. His tasks during the day are usually determined by what is on the priority list of the queue sent by students, staff, and faculty. Some of Al's many tasks are installing software, install and fix hardware, network support, and fix computers. Once in a while, he will check on the computer labs in Civil Engineering whenever help is needed there. According to Al, the most challenging part of being the Assistant Computer Systems Analyst is managing the daily tasks accordingly and accommodating the high demands of the people in Civil Engineering.
As the Assistant Computer Systems Analyst for Civil Engineering, Al assists Josh Harley
