Why you chose DCU?

DCU has a lot of support for the tech industry. I wanted to study computing while having access to many of the great services DCU provides. Support for start ups, productive labs and the opportunity to go on a work placement in my third year is why I chose DCU. 

One unique part of your course

 The course is full of applied work instead of solely relying on lectures for teaching. Most of my time is spent in the labs solving problems with programming which is going to be extremely useful when going to work. 

Best thing about DCU so far?

Getting involved in societies, particularly the Redbrick society where we get given a number of talks on all of the other sides of computing. The free pizza is always appreciated.

Plans after DCU?

I have an interest in game and app development so I'd love to find myself working in either!
