BSc Business Information Systems)

"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 Three

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. This work inspired her 3rd year project. Katrina started work at HVB after graduating and is currently working at Unicredit.

"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."
