Charlotte, Computing

'UTC is exciting and adventurous. It’s adventurous because it opens up paths you never knew about and exciting because the things you do here you can’t do anywhere else!’

It was the opportunities UTC offered that convinced Charlotte it was the right place for her: ‘UTC offered me opportunities in computing I’d never had before, it’s given me a chance to do what I really want and hopefully to have the career I want. I want to be a graphic designer or a games programmer; I’ve been doing graphic design at home on my computer for a while and I’m just really interested in gaming.’
Studying Computing, Charlotte has already had the opportunity to work in some of the school’s brand new facilities: ‘The facilities here are useful and very well developed. I like the computing labs best; the Raspberry Pi lab is useful and it helps when it comes to programming because it helps with code.’
Continuing Charlotte said, ‘I also like the employer input here. It’s valuable because the projects we do here are what actually happens in industry; not only that but they help us to understand what jobs will be like and how to relate deadlines to real life.’
Summing up her experience so far Charlotte said, ‘Exciting and adventurous. It’s adventurous because it opens up paths you never knew about and exciting because the things you do here you can’t do anywhere else!’
