"My degree has significantly helped in my career to date. The course content was relevant to my chosen career, on the IT side I was able to go into project meetings understanding the technical elements of the conversation, on the business side I studied accountancy, business management and other core business principles which have translated directly into my role as a project manager."

Case Study Two

During the Summer vacation between her 2nd and 3rd years of study Katrina Lowles worked at HVB designing a floor plan system for the Infrastructure and Facilities department.

"Being a developer in this environment, I'm always learning from my colleagues and "playing with" new technologies. Every day is solving an existing issue or figuring out the slickest, most extensible solution to a new requirement.  

Before studying computer science at UEA, I hadn't fully grasped the infinite complexity and versatility of the programming world. University teaches you a special way of thinking and gives you the confidence to use what you know to find out what you don't."

, (MSc Games Development)

"Studying at UEA was an unforgettable experience for me, especially when it comes to the MSc in Games Development. The course opened new career opportunities for me through its module diversity and large variety in the technologies studied. Moreover, thanks to my lecturers I took part in the games development competition Search For A Star, where I came second in the UK, certainly helping me in pursuing a job in the industry. The result of this one year journey was to get in touch with some magnificent studios around the country and finally get myself a position as a graphics programmer for Neon Play Ltd, one of the best mobile game studios in the UK."

"I have great memories of my year at University of East Anglia, thanks to the quality of the courses and the professors which helped getting me a place as 'Bioinformatician'at Biocon India. Studying at UEA have brought an added value to my personal life. I would also like to mention the practical knowledge and exposure that was given to me during my dissertation at Institute of Food Research have prepared me for working life in order to quickly become professional at end of my studies. I would highly recommend the MSc Computational Biology program at UEA."
