What our students say
My placement at NTU was so useful and gave a full insight into working life. When starting out, my sights were set pretty tightly on video game development, but the course taught me about the whole world of software development.
I currently work for IBM as IT Support for Linux. I help maintain the hardware and software that the testers use to stress test the latest and greatest applications created on-site. I specialise in all Linux distributions, so the role is really pushing a deep technical insight into the platform at an expert level.
