I returned to education as a mature student in 2016 and originally applied to study Business at Donegal Letterkenny. But at the last minute, I changed my mind and enrolled in Computing.
At the end of my first year in the Bachelor of Science in Computing course, I took up a three-month paid internship with All-State.
I was delighted to win a competition that allowed me to travel and work in the United States on behalf of All-State. I took a year out and embraced this placement opportunity. Then I returned to Letterkenny to study the BSc (Hons) in Applied Computing.
What is great about computing at ATU Letterkenny campus is that you can move between the courses after the first year. There is so much flexibility and support.
My third year team project was awarded best project in 2020. In my fourth year, I worked on developing a mobile application that scans banknotes to support the visually impaired.
