Yizhen Liu runs Twitch and youtube channels that show how to build custom mechanical keyboards, and he reviews tech products. Yizhen also joined a keyboard designing project, taking part in every process, including 3D modeling, rendering, usability testing and product reviewing. "When I talk to people, I sense what they are thinking and find out what they need quickly," says Yizhen, who describes himself as "innovative" and "empathetic." After completing a bachelor's degree in computer science and engineering from the University of California Davis, he chose ATLAS because of its "flexible curriculum and a practice-oriented approach of learning." He plans to learn interactive product design and UI/IX in the CTD program and to become a UX designer after graduation.
