July 2003 I will graduate from the University of York with an expected first
class masters degree in Computer Systems and Software Engineering. The Computer
Science department at York is one of the best in the country. My course has enabled me to develop both
technical and personal skills. I have
had to manage my time to fit together my projects, course modules, and through
group projects my degree has allowed me to expand my team working abilities.
have been working during the holidays for an Internet firm - Proweb. This has allowed me to experience a wide
range of work related skills and enabled me to explore many areas of
interest. I have used my initiative
when dealing with numerous projects, but always prepared to incorporate the
suggestions and criticisms of others.
This experience has focused my interest within the software engineering
and computer systems industry.
intention on graduation is to pursue a career where I have the opportunity to
further develop my personal character and technical skills, with an
organisation that is challenging and seeks innovation.

Programmer / Technical support / Systems Administrator
I have worked at Proweb during
all my university breaks. It is a small
company (about 8 employees) which provides a complete network / software
service. Although my primary role is as
programmer, I also do many other Systems Administration tasks and customer
projects. I find the job interesting
and highly rewarding.
have always had an interest in technology and how it works, but it wasn’t until
I went to 6th form college that I was
first shown how to write a program. The
fact that I could write things that other people used fascinated me. It is why I chose a computer science degree
and why I jumped at the chance of having a part time job programming. Through my work at Proweb I have written
systems that others now use daily; this is very satisfying.
I was younger I was in the scouts. I progressed though beavers, cubs and
scouts, becoming a Patrol Leader in my last two years. I found it good for team building as well as
an individual challenge. My final
achievement was to successfully complete the Chief Scout’s Challenge.
I have built a hi-fi separates system, which
I continue to improve when I get the available funds. My tastes in music are varied.
my Dad I restore vintage tractors and show them. My Dad mainly does the mechanical side of things and I focus on
the electrical side. We then show them at rallies and at least once a year go
ploughing. This is a relaxing hobby and
allows me to get away from modern technology, but at the same time keep my mind
Drivers licence: I have held a driver’s licence since my 18th
Computing: Experience using
Windows, Linux and FreeBSD.
Programming: C, Visual Basic (including ASP) and Pascal. Some Ada 95.
