ALUMNI talks inspire UWTSD computing students

09.10.2018

UWTSD has welcomed computing graduate Nathan Dickinson and his colleague Simone Cuomo from Vizolution, together with PhD student and Electronics graduate Mathew Hunt, back to the University to deliver inspiring talks to students at the Faculty of Architecture, Computing and Engineering.

 

Nathan completed his Computing degree with UWTSD in 2012 before starting his career as a Software Developer with NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS).  He became a Senior Software Developer with NWIS in 2014 before starting as a Senior Developer with Vizolution in 2016. He was appointed Lead Developer with Vizolution in Swansea and a Product Technical Lead at the same company in 2017.

UWTSD’s James Williams said: “Every year it is lovely to receive messages from our graduates who say they would like to return to the School to give something back. These Graduates are doing well, they have established successful careers and volunteer to come back to the School to talk to our students. Often they themselves were inspired and given employment opportunities by other graduate talks during their time with us at the University.

“Our graduates work in countries all over the world, have exciting careers and fantastic lifestyles. There are a lot of opportunities in the field of Computing & Technology, globally and locally – more than ever before.”

Nathan and Simone said they were delighted to share hints & tips for University and career success.

Speaking to the UWTSD Computing students, Nathan said: “Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are lucky, you have worked hard and deserve your place here at University” … “In the words of Buzz light-year ‘To Infinity and Beyond!’ dare to dream and never give up, if you set your mind to it you can do it!”
