Picture of a Scotty Dog

Hello there. Looks like you've stumbled on my CMU webpage. I guess they didn't remove it after all when I graduated.

My name is Andrew Benson, sometimes known through my AndrewID, adbenson. I was an undergrad at CMU from 2013 to 2017, majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Physics and Mathematics. I started off in ECE, moved to Physics briefly, and eventually transferred to SCS by the end of freshman year.

I was best known for my role as a Teaching Assistant for introductory CS courses, which I enjoyed very much. I was a TA for 15-122 (S14, F14, F15, S16 head), 15-112 (S15), 15-151 (F16 head), 15-131 (F16), and 15-251 (S17).

I also taught a student-led course on the version control system git ("Git StuCo") in F15, S16, and F16. At the time of writing, the StuCo continues to be taught by CMU students.

I no longer have edit access to this webpage, so if you'd like to get in touch, please visit my website at
