Tuan Vo

I earned a Master's Degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor's Degree in the same with a minor in Mathematics from Cal Poly Pomona in 1992 and 1990 respectively.  I also graduated with an Associate of Arts Degree from San Bernardino Valley College in 1988.  In order to keep up with the latest developments in this field, I completed another Master’s Degree in Software Engineering at Cal State Fullerton in May 2008.
Before joining Mt. San Antonio College in the Fall 2000, I worked as a software engineer for TRW and Hughes Electronics for about eight years and then I taught Computer Information Systems at Citrus College for three plus years.  For a number of years, I was a lecturer in Computer Science at Cal Poly Pomona.

Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus and via Zoom sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
