Professor Roopa Mathur
Beginning her journey in the world of computers in 1986 as an avionics system engineer for Boeing, IVC Professor Roopa Mathur had no idea then how important computers would eventually become in her life. Now a full-time faculty member at Irvine Valley College, she constantly seeks to engage her students in all areas of computer information management, from web development and animation, to database and multiple PC applications. A lover of brainteasers, her motto in life is “Never Stop Learning,” a philosophy she tries to live by, and one she daily tries to impart to her students.
