Daniel J. Clarke, a systems engineer for Cisco Systems who earned four information technology degrees from Penn College in 2007, returned Thursday to share his knowledge on “the Internet of Things” and provide tips on how to be successful in the information technology field. Clarke’s real-world insight, shared in a Breuder Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center classroom, was facilitated by Jeff Weaver, associate professor of electronics.
