BSc (Honours) Computing and IT

University: The Open University
Started: October 2014
Graduated: October 2021

I like organising and analysing and I love science and computing. However, I am not so much a cog in the machine, but rather someone who can analyse the machine, find the problem, and fix it by replacing a cog, building a new cog or making an interface for an older cog to work with a newer cog. Sometimes this involves analysing copious amounts of data. For a full breakdown of my degree check out the menu bar at the top
