I have a degree in Information Technology, and I’ve been working for some years in the software industry as both a programmer and technical resource for sales. I wanted to find a degree where I could use my technical background at the same time as developing design skills and be creatively challenged.
I’ve always had an artistic side to me and this degree seemed to be perfect. I’ve really enjoyed playing and experimenting with such a wide variety of technologies. I’ve especially enjoyed working with sensor based interfaces – making things talk using electronics combined with software.
For anyone considering this degree I’d say whether you come from a technical or a more creative background, as long as you have a passion for design, and like working with ideas and cutting edge technologies, this degree would be a good choice.
