Sarah Wood: BSc Computer Science with Industrial Experience graduate 2005
'As part of my degree I had a one year industrial placement at EA (Electronic Arts) in Surrey. During the year I worked as a gameplay programmer on the game Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. In this role I gained experience working on a large software project as part of a team of varying disciplines. I mainly wrote elements of the A.I. for the creatures and scripted some effects and puzzles in the game. I was then sponsored by the company, this meant I had a job secured when I graduated, allowing me to concentrate on my final year without the added pressure of looking for a job. After graduating I returned to EA Criterion to work on Black and now work at EA Warrington. Opting for a year in industry was a great experience and the skills that I gained helped a great deal towards my success in both the third year and in starting my new career.'
