Tim Christovich Junior / Computer Science (Cybersecurity) Jacksonville, Fla. Jeremiah Lantzer Junior / Software Engineering Port Orange, Fla. Winners of the global Thales Arduino competition.

Tim Christovich and Jeremiah Lantzer are still undergraduates at Embry-Riddle, yet they’ve already shown they have what it takes to succeed in industry. In addition to leading a statewide, 24-hour programming challenge called the “HackRiddle,” Lantzer and Christovich, with their colleague Kyle Cochran, recently took the worldwide prize in the Thales Arduino competition. Their winning entry – honored at an event in Paris, France – was a drone landing and charging station that featured a protective shell and used radio-frequency identification for signaling. Christovich, a junior whose major is computer science with a concentration in cybersecurity engineering, said he is passionate about developing his skills in three key areas: web-based software applications, mobile applications, and the Internet of Things. “My goal once I graduate from Embry-Riddle is to continue to make a difference in the Central Florida technology community and help it to grow with regard to the different industries that are becoming more and more prominent in the area every day,” Christovich said. “The University connects me to all these different companies … It’s amazing to see all the ways that companies will reach out to our University for our students and our candidates because they know that we have what it takes.” Christovich has so far completed two industry internships, working with a healthcare technology firm based in Jacksonville, Fla., and with Thales Engineering in Melbourne, Fla., developing Android applications for in-flight entertainment.
