What do our students say?...
One week I might be doing a web design for a client which gives me 'real world' experience and ties in with my web-based modules...
I have enjoyed the challenge of taking on the BSc Hons Computer Science course at the University of Chester; the lecturers teach their subject well, and the courses are well structured. The feedback for assignments is simple but informative, and I have been impressed with the quality of the support staff at the department. The last three years of University have been the most enjoyable of my life so far, and I enjoyed writing my dissertation on Test Driven Development & The ASP.NET MVC Framework. Although the assignment-times can be stressful (all those late nights!), it has been worth it with an attainment of a first class degree. My strongest field is programming, and I now work for the Informatics Centre within the University as a Software Developer. Currently I am undertaken my postgraduate study in Information System, but ultimately; I hope to attain a doctorate at the University.
Matthew Griffiths - BSc Hons Computer Science
I studied Computer Science at the University from 2007-2010 and have enjoyed every moment of it! The module content was relevant adding experience into existing areas of knowledge, but more importantly establishing new ones. I found both staff and fellow students where helpful and friendly. Teaching groups were a perfect size and a variety of technologies were used in class to demonstrate the topics being taught. In the third year, I undertook a personal, supervised project to implement a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) into a secondary school and looked at what was required to carry out such a task. I am currently employed full time as a Software Developer, but aspire to be a project manager on international projects.
Adam Hughes - BSc Hons Computer Science
I graduated from Computer Science and Information Systems in 2009 with a first class honours degree in Multimedia Technologies. Aside from the great friends and colleagues I met throughout my time as an undergraduate student, I was able to really push my creative and technical boundaries through my project-based work. I was encouraged to work on topics I enjoyed in applying my new computing skills, meaning I never felt too constrained in the work I was undertaking. Towards my third year dissertation I started to step further outside my comfort zone by exploring new technologies, particularly as things change so fast in computing! I feel this has really prepared me for the future.
