There are four documents here. The first is a look at my overall performance from James O’Flanagans attendance at The University of Akron, Case Western Reserve University, and John Carroll University. Over the years Engineering Consultant James O’Flanagan has received 40 A's, 15 B's, 1 C, 2 D's, 1 F, and 1 CR. My overall GPA is 3.49, which I believe matches my personality pretty well. The first document is the conglomerated spreadsheet with the grades from all three schools. The next three documents are the official transcripts from each school.
Master of Science in Engineering Management
This is an official copy of Jim's transcript from the University of Akron when he obtained his Master's Degree in Engineering Management. He attended from 2007 to 2010.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering
Completed Part 2 of the 3/2 dual degree program in conjunction with John Carroll University. I really had a tough time finishing this degree out. During my last year in school I suffered a health scare, my financial situation changed, my grandmother died, and my brother got married. During all of this, I made the decision to start working full time at Goodyear in Akron even though Case was in Cleveland! It was a tough first lesson in what my limitations were, although I didn't know that at the time. At the time, it felt like the end of the world, which I suppose it part and parcel of going to college. I could have used a little less excitement though! It's funny, because one of the classes I did not do so well in was Thermodynamics, and about a decade and half later the US Government started trusted me to design nuclear reactors using the pressure vessel code. The one class I did fail, which was CAD, I actually re-took 10 years later as a grad student and got an A. Just goes to show you that grades are sometimes labels too, and that you shouldn't let those labels stop you. Me and the US Government did just fine. It was one of the best lessons of my life.
Completed Part 1 of the 3/2 Physics/Engineering Double Major at John Carroll University. I was also a member of the football team with a few future NFL players. We even got to be on ESPN for one of the Mount Union games, where were always big. Had a lot of really good times here. I miss it and the people a great deal.
