I find that Computer Science has certainly become a core discipline of study, and one that continues to grow. It is unique in its own way, as not only is it a broad discipline which has many sub divisions you could specialise in, but it also has an exceptionally broad application to nearly every other discipline imaginable.

Technology is a field that will never cease to be exciting and evolving. The world is also getting to such a stage where the majority are becoming highly dependent on technology. Every day, I have the opportunity to read about fascinating new inventions that are enhancing existing business services to a whole other level. I am determined to be a part of this fast paced environment and hope to succeed in this field of Computer Science.

As a student in this field, I find that Computer Science has certainly become a core discipline of study, and one that continues to grow. It is unique in its own way, I feel, as not only is it a broad discipline which has many sub divisions you could specialise in; it also has an exceptionally broad application to nearly every other discipline imaginable.

Computer Science has presented me with numerous challenges along the way during my first two years, as I find it quite challenging. Nevertheless, I felt that it has made me develop my attitude to persevere and try my hardest in whatever I do which has definitely reflected in my present year of work. So far, I have found the modules relating to Artificial Intelligence and Graphics the most intriguing.

Following 2nd year, I succeeded in obtaining a placement with the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG). Dynamic and demanding are two of many attributes of my role as the Deputy Venue Technology Manager for the Olympic Villages. As a team, we aim to deliver all the technology, ranging from a LAN port to a TV in the Olympic Villages so that we can provide the best living experience possible for all the athletes attending the Games in London. Despite having such a stimulating role as it is, LOCOG has further provided me with invaluable opportunities to work in phenomenal events such as the ATP World Tour Tennis Finals and the International Gymnastics Olympics Qualification Event.

The 2012 Olympics, in London, my home – a once in a lifetime experience – I am going to make an effort to grasp every opportunity and overcome any hurdles that face me so I can be a part of the greatest Olympic and Paralympic Games till date.
