First Class Honours Graduate of 2005 Project Manager, Shell Malaysia

First Class Honours Graduate of 2010 Web Application Developer, Inmagine

My work at a leading global financial services company requires me to deal with the day-to-day processing of data for operational and reporting purposes. The Northumbria University degree programme was invaluable in equipping me with the skill set every IT professional needs, including programming, database management, design and implementation as well as management and organisational skills. This programme teaches vital foundational knowledge that will prepare anyone embarking on a career in IT for the challenges of this everchanging and revolutionary industry.

Prior to my graduation, the economy again took a dive with high unemployment rate. I was surprised that I’ve received a few job offers with only just my past semester results and internship experience. Since graduation, I have had worked as a Java Programmer, IT Security Technical Consultant, Business IT Analyst and now a Project Manager. I am glad that I’ve chosen the Northumbria degree programme in KDU as it provides a variety of subjects such as IT Programming, Management, Security, and Organizational Behaviour which helped me in my journey ascending the corporate ladder. I appreciate the commitment of the knowledgeable lecturers in KDU and the great support of my family. Without them, all these will still remain a dream. They’ve fulfilled my dreams.

I am through and through a product of KDU as I’ve pursued my entire course of studies here, from the diploma programme right up to my degree studies. One could say that I’m here at where I am today due to the support of my family and my friendly, helpful and patient lecturers in KDU who have guided me through my studies. During the course of my studies here, I was also a recipient of KDU Scholarship Foundation’s Merit Award, which spurred me to work harder in graduating with a flourish and achieving my dreams. And for that, I will always be thankful.
