About: I am a second year student, reading for a Degree in Computing and Information Systems with the University of London, at St. Martin’s Institute of Higher Education.
Prior to registering for this course I had very basic knowledge of what IT offers, however that has changed. During my studies I have found the course to be of great interest, being mostly intrigued by subjects which allow us to develop a product. My obtained skills still require refining, however with determination and perseverance that is a barrier I intend to break.
Interest: The MarBoa project was something I had previously read about from a received school email during summer and immediately struck a liking to it. However, due to previous work commitments I was unable to attend. Thus, when I heard of the possibility to enrol as part of an extra-curricular activity, I immediately grasped the opportunity.
Personally I believe that this will allow me to gather new knowledge in other fields which collaborate with technology in order to be able to develop a satisfactory product.
