Megan Wyn Owen – Electronic Engineering
Megan Wyn Owen from Anglesey is studying Electronic Engineering.
The course is composed of modules that are taught through lectures, seminars and practicals. The balance between the lectures and lab sessions has ensured that I understand the work, as I get to apply what I’ve learned in lectures in lab practicals.
Christopher Waldron – Computer Science
Christopher Antony Waldron, 21 from Rubery, Birmingham has recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science.
I'd heard that the department (Electronic Engineering/ CompSci) was rated highly in the national rankings, and so I decided to check the University out on an Open Day. I'd been to one other open day, and found the environment a little unfriendly but when I came to Bangor, I instantly got a feeling of welcome, and I was impressed by the work and research being done by some of our members of staff. I was sold on that day!
Syed Aslam – Computer Science
Syed Aslam from Pakistan is studying for a PhD in Computer Science.
Being a PhD student is a totally different experience for me from my previous studies. The best thing is that I have to do self-study, which makes me feel free.
James Jackson – Computer Science
James R. Jackson, from Llandudno studied Computer Science at Bangor
SEECS is a fantastic department with a knowledgeable, helpful and close-knit community. The course is well structured and covers a wide variety of subjects under the computer science umbrella. There are multiple occasions where a module offering underpinning knowledge is built upon throughout the degree in subsequent modules. Due to this there is no “learning for learning’s sake” feeling that is sometimes prevalent in education.
Jade Peat – Computer Information Systems
Jade Peat studied Computer Information Systems (BSc) at Bangor and now works as a Software Developer.
My career kicked started at a world-leading centre of expertise in testing and gaming as an Analyst Programmer. With over a year worth of experience in industry I was then ready to start my current role as a Software Developer with Jisc where I work with cutting edge technology every day.
John Mahon – Electronic Engineering
John Mahon is from Dartford in Kent and is studying Electronic Engineering.
The Electronic Engineering course at Bangor offered a scholarship to the person with the highest mark in the exam. The scholarship gave me confidence that I would be capable of continuing with the course, as it got more difficult.
Andrew Leavers – Computer Science
Andrew from Lancaster is currently in his third year studying Computer Science. During his second year he took part in the Enterprise by Design scheme
I took part in Enterprise by Design last year. You get teamed up in groups where everyone brings their own unique skill to the table. You get given a brief from the real world and asked to come up with a solution in your team.
