BSc (Hons) Computing

Jonathan Palmer

Jonathan finished his BSc (Hons) in Computing with a 2:1. He also received an O’Reilly Award (£350 worth of books for a year) for the student who travelled the greatest academic distance and he also received a paid role for Sony as a games tester during the summer. He has now gone on to study a Masters degree at Edge Hill University in Games Programme and Visual Computing.

"As I did my BTEC Computing course at Wigan & Leigh College, I felt confident in the tutors knowledge and expertise and wanted to continue learning with the great facilities that were on offer."

"During my degree I was able to develop an artificial intelligence for a game which is something I want to do as a career. I also enjoyed the creative freedom during projects and we were pushed to go outside of our comfort zones to increase our skill in other areas such as virtual reality for mobile phones."
