Zachary Kaufman

Graduate school at Stanford was so much easier with the logical thinking skills I learned at IMACS. While classmates tried to memorize each type of problem, I was able to strongly grasp core concepts and use them to solve any problem, even if it was different from those I had seen.

Zachary Kaufman From IMACS in 1st Grade to Stanford!

Zachary started IMACS in 1st grade. During his IMACS years, Zachary completed Math Enrichment, Computer Enrichment, Electronics and University-Level courses in Computer Science and Logic for Mathematics. He scored 800 on the math portion of the SAT and was a National Merit Scholarship Winner.

As an undergraduate studying Electrical Engineering in the University of Florida’s Honors Program, Zachary conducted extensive research that led to several prestigious awards and a patent application. Notably, he was named a Goldwater Scholar, the nation’s most prestigious undergraduate award for science and engineering. Zachary was also one of only 20 students nationally to receive a NASA Undergraduate Fellowship. All while on the way to graduating with a perfect 4.0 GPA!

After receiving full scholarships to the Electrical Engineering PhD programs at Stanford, Berkeley, Georgia Tech and Harvard, as well as an NSF Fellowship, Zachary chose to pursue his doctorate at Stanford with an emphasis on devices with biomedical applications. He directly credits his IMACS classes for teaching him the skills he used to succeed on engineering projects and in the lab.

Zachary had the IMACS advantage!

He chose Stanford.
