I would recommend the Computer Science degree at NTU... the quality of teaching is great and the facilities are very good.

More about Cat

"I am currently working at Mind Candy in London, as a front-end developer. I primarily write ActionScript, coding the visual elements and front end logic of Moshi Monsters. However, because I'm multi-disciplined (thanks to the very varied content of the NTU Computer Science course), I also do a fair amount of java and database work. I joined the company two years ago as a developer when the game was rather new. We now have over 29 million children worldwide playing the game!

"I strongly believe that the course has assisted me greatly by teaching us primarily how to code. Not how to code in a specific language. By teaching us in C++, we learned software development from a low level and this makes learning new languages easy. It's just syntax at the end of the day! I know a lot of other university courses primarily teach java, but I honestly think C++ was the best choice for the course.

"I would recommend the Computer Science degree at NTU as it is a very good, varied course, with lots of modules to pick from. The quality of teaching is great, and the facilities are very good. I would strongly recommend that students make use of the placement year to get an idea of the industry and where they might like to work - it's an excellent opportunity to improve your skills for the final year."
