OUR SUCCESS STORY
I was an introvert back then but studying in IUKL helped boost my confidence and my communication skills, especially with international students. I was also motivated to study as I loved the programme I took. I was in the Dean’s list every semester and I received tuition fee waivers throughout my studies. My studies helped me dive deeper into the world of technology by understanding how every perspective could affect the technology in the future. With the knowledge I have gained, I am determined to create an IT company of my own in the future. I am currently a freelance web developer. I am working in small to medium scale projects and I have developed a couple of systems for my clients.
I chose IUKL because of its choice of courses. Since it is an international university, I can meet students from around the world and know more about their country and culture. To me, the most challenging subject in this course is Programming. Some programmes may have errors so we need to redo them again from the beginning, which takes a lot of time. I chose this course because Computer Science is different from other courses. It is challenging but I am up to it! Since Information Technology is used in our everyday life, I would love to know more about how it works, so this is why I prefer this course.
All companies now have an IT department in which they will need the expertise in this area. This qualification opens up a variety of doors in the exciting world of technology. You are suited to jobs in the IT and associated industries which gives you a wide area of career options to choose from. You will be suited for positions such as:
- System Analyst
- System Designer
- System Developer
- Web/System Administrator
- Database Administrator
