Elise Davies, Digital Media BSc(Hons) tells us about her final year project (and her course).
“I chose Brighton because not many universities offered digital media and I liked the variety of the course. I was going to choose graphic design but I wanted the knowledge of coding which this course given me. The city of Brighton was also a big factor, there is always something going on and it’s a lovely city to live in.
Computer Science (Games) BSc(Hons) student John Evans tells us a bit about his course and demos his final year project robot at the Computing Degree Show.
“I chose this course as it is a general computer science course which could give me more options compared to focusing purely on games. The artificial intelligence modules and web-based games module were the most exciting for me personally, as I got to explore interesting concepts with technologies I enjoyed using.
I had an interest in technology from a young age and believed that Computer Science would allow me to understand more about tech and learn the skills I would need to join the tech world. Brighton is also known as UK’s next digital tech hub and this can be seen by the various small business and start-ups within the area. This makes having the University of Brighton on my CV much more valuable for employers.
I would highly recommend Computer Science to anyone considering it. There is a good mix of modules within the course (mostly technical) but you will have a few modules throughout the degree which will teach you how businesses may apply these principles.
Sam Buxton, Business Information Systems BA(Hons), talks about his work experience at RSM UK and migrating into the Microsoft Cloud.
I did my placement at RSM UK where I worked as an IT Trainee for 16 months. The role encompassed everything from IT Support tasks, all the way up to designing and deploying solutions to meet the business needs. I managed the third line support desk while simultaneously working on agile project tasks, such as the migration of employees into the Microsoft Cloud. I also had the opportunity to help colleagues fit out new offices with the base networking infrastructure.
Zahra Rahman, Digital Media BSc(Hons), tells us about her travel safety app project.
“My final year project is based on the evaluation and re-design of a mobile app called FCO Alerts that was available via Google Play. The app allows the traveller/consumer to select countries they would like to receive safety updates for.
A successful placement year led to the inspiration for a final year project and job on graduation, for final year Business Information Systems BA(Hons) student Kathryn Haycock. We caught up with Kathryn at the Computing Degree Show and found out more about her placement, her final year project and life as a University of Brighton student.
