Every day brings a new challenge for Computer Science. The subject is extremely diverse and success depends on the creativity and the commitment of the individual. I gain satisfaction from solving logical problems and working with computer systems. Ever since my IT technician at Secondary School introduced me to programming in Powershell. I always want to know just how computers worked and how much they could evolve over time.
This interest has only grown more intense with each new discovery that I make. I always investigate the invention of a new product or a new programming language that requires me to completely change the SYNTAX of my code. Computers control modern society in such a way that today, we can’t go about day to day life without them.
Physics A-Level, specifically the electricity unit has given me a solid understanding of the complex of the electronics within a computer, combined with the programming skills of computing, link together flawlessly. This gives me a good knowledge of operational computing and a natural desire to progress in both subjects further which ensure I am committed to studying Computer Science at degree level. Choosing business studies has given me the capability to expand upon my evaluative and analytical skills whilst boosting my knowledge of computing in the business world.
I worked 6 weeks full-time in the summer working at the headquarters of a multi-national company in the IT division, which improved my understanding of working in a computing environment in the real world. I began, assisting the IT department with their day-to-day roles of sustaining the IT infrastructure and implementing new software. This role enabled me to hone my team-working and co-operation skills whilst undertaking a variety of tasks. I quickly realised that the company must implement new software and infrastructure to remain modern and easily sustainable. Using the knowledge that I gained through self-study and my A-Level Computing course, I developed brand...
