I saw that Informatics had Gaming & Animation courses, and I thought that would be interesting to do, so I went for it! I enrolled in the Gaming & Animation Diploma, then went on to complete my Advanced Diploma and Degree here. I’ve been in Singapore for five years and enjoyed being in Informatics.”

Oxford Brookes University BSc. (Hons) Network Computing Alumni Testimonials

Andy Tan, BSc. (Hons) Network Computing

Network Engineer – IBM Singapore

“As Network Engineer with IBM Singapore, I troubleshoot network issues while handling data center relocation projects and deployment of IBM products. This includes gather customer requirements, plan project timelines, deliver network projects by installing, cabling and configuring equipment.

I signed up for a Network Computing Degree with Informatics because it is well-established with over 30 years in the education industry. Throughout the course we learnt practical and in-depth knowledge of the Network Computing fundamentals. This is something not all working environments can provide. Teaching materials are comprehensive, campus location is central and is accessible and course pace is relatively comfortable for part-time students, especially those who are already working full-time. Lecturers are understanding and go the extra mile to assist students.”

Niruth Wijewardane, BSc. Network Computing (First Class Hons)

Data Center Operations Lead, Amazon Web Services

The quality of the education and affiliated universities matter – Informatics’ affiliated universities are well-reputed in the UK. The course materials and books that we get from the institute are very helpful. The assignments can be very tough, but they help us to learn more and explore more solutions beyond the classroom, with the support of the lecturers as well. Considering all these factors, Informatics is a good choice for anyone to do their Bachelor’s degree and Diplomas to start in the IT Field.

Ng Wen Chang, BSc. (Hons) Network Computing

Network Consultant, NCS

“My job requires a great deal of problem-solving and lateral thinking skills. Prior to taking my degree, I was only equipped with basic knowledge on how to carry out my work sufficiently but did not possess any knowledge outside my job scope.

Before taking up my degree I was never exposed to the entire project flow and how various project aspects fit together. My degree has been helpful in providing me with a strong foundation in computing, as well as a broad perspective of a project’s overall structure.
