Hey guys and gals!
I'm now at the crucial stage of choosing a university course to study, and a university to study it in. My heart is set on software engineering me thinks. I've looked at many other programming courses and this just seems to fit. I'm nearing the end of my first year at 6th form/college, and the staff are now pushing us into starting our personal applications, it's all happening so fast! I can't wait until I go to uni, I can do what I love to do and have been doing on and off for the past 3 years, just 1 more year to go! I'm going down to Huddersfield in October to check out their university. It has a great 5 year Software Engineering sandwich course, giving a Master of Engineering degree, which I think is pretty sweet! The downside is that I need 300 UCAS points to get in - 3 B's or an A, B, C - although if I can work hard enough I'm sure that I'll get the grades that I want. I'm posting this because I want students that are planning on going to uni, already at uni or graduated and in a career to share what information they hold about university and software engineering. What made you pick it? What uni did you study at? Did you enjoy it? etc... C'mon, share, I'm real excited on going!
