Meet our Student
DeAngelo Brown is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and served one year in Iraq during his thirteen years of service. The father of three left the Corps in 2011 and decided to enroll at MiraCosta College en route to earning a Ph.D. in electrical engineering. “MiraCosta has a reputation as being the Harvard of community colleges,” he said. “It’s a good school.” DeAngelo has achieved academic excellence at MiraCosta College and will be transferring to the Jacob’s School of Engineering at UC San Diego in the fall. He plans to conduct research in satellite communications equipment or teach on the university level. DeAngelo’s interest in electronics was fostered as a child while watching his father repair broken electronic devices. MiraCosta College continued his passion for engineering and electronics through the outstanding instruction of the college’s faculty.
