BSc (Hons) Computing
Solent prepared me to be an innovative and creative thinker and helped me gain the core skills of working within a professional environment. The entrepreneurial focus at Solent really geared me up and pushed me towards starting and running my own business.
That’s quite a hard one as there were so many – from the technology champions recruitment and events, to the Hackathon that one of my lecturers ran, the British Conference for Undergraduate Research (BCUR) event I presented work at, working with my classmates ... I had so many! I also graduated with a first-class honours degree and had the highest grade in computing for that graduation year.
After graduating I continued with my freelance work in areas including web development, app development, UX/UI design and training. I also became director of the umbrella innovation company, Remiam Ltd using a variety of technologies and working with web, mobile and smart home devices to follow the new exciting trend of the Internet of Things. A recent product we developed is an app called ‘Instarama’ which creates panoramic images for Instagram. I’m now working with a variety of clients around the world and going to a variety of networking events across the UK, providing products and services to clients.
A typical working day for me is managing two businesses, liaising with my clients, searching for new clients and creating innovative products – oh, and the occasional Starbucks!
My number one tip is to be passionate about the technology industry and you will reap the benefits later.
