Evan Hallam graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Computer Engineering with minors in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Evansville in May 2007. He participated in various activities including ACM, IEEE, Kappa Mu Epsilon and Eta Kappa Nu. While attending UE, Evan worked in several different capacities ranging from retail sales to network administration to various teaching assistant positions.
His senior project at UE was to design and build an autonomous robot for the IEEE SoutheastCon Student Hardware Competition. The objective was to simulate a game of basketball by requiring robots to traverse a playing field, read an IR transmission to rebound, and fire ping-pong balls through a hoop.
Immediately after graduating from UE, Evan married his childhood sweetheart, Jessica. He then joined Ciholas in June 2007. In his spare time, Evan enjoys cooking, watching movies, swimming and investigating new technologies.
