Here’s a little post to introduce you to your magical, mischievous, ever-so-helpful, elf-like subject librarian ;-). Our resident librarian on the Mount Pleasant Campus Owen Library is Suzanne Taylor (below middle). Computing students, please get in touch with Suzanne if you need any help in finding or accessing library resources.
Q. Favourite Christmas movie:
‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ as it shows the positive impact one person can have upon so many lives or ‘The Holiday’ because I would love to spend Christmas in Kate Winslet’s country cottage.
Q. Favourite Christmas book:
It would probably have to be A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
Q. Favourite Christmas food:
A roast turkey or chicken dinner with all the trimmings, – minus the sprouts :-).
Q. One of the best things about Christmas:
There’s something very special about driving to see family early on a frosty Christmas morning when the roads are empty. Also walking my dog on a beach on Boxing Day and seeing him chase the ball along the tide’s edge.
Here’s a new graduate profile for Makhlukat Hassan who graduated from BEng Computer Networks Technology a few years back – nice to hear from you, Mak!
Gower college students from Gorseinon campus visited School of Applied Computing on 1st Dec 2014 for a tailor made taster session on Computer Networks.
Dr Stephen Hole, Head of School (second from the right) welcomed the students and staff on their arrival. The taster session was organised by Dr Kapilan Radhakrishnan (far left) and Dr Carlene Campbell far right) and was designed to give the students an idea of what is involved in the HN/BSc Computer Networks Programme. Kapilan started the session and the students were given details of the advantages of studying computer networking, job prospects in the field, and additional professional qualifications that they can achieve to enhance their Career prospects whilst studying within the School without any extra cost. Later, Carlene took over and gave the students hands-on experience setting-up security on a network and white-hat hacking. The students really enjoyed the session and gave a lot of positive feedback.
