The School of Applied Computing were pleased to welcome back Graduate Daniel Hawkes this lunchtime to give a Masterclass for undergraduate students on the challenges facing change and data management. Daniel studied the Business Information Technology degree as a part time student whilst he was also working and graduated from UWTSD in 2016. He is now a Complex Analysis Manager for BT, looking at big data and business intelligence.
Daniel said: “I was already doing a technical role within BT but I needed more business knowledge and theory. BSc Business Information Technology helps you from a corporate perspective because it has a nice balance between data and business. I would not be here without doing both the degree and my job. They went hand-in-hand. The degree sets you up for the future because it gives you a rounded understanding of how businesses operate. The lecturers at the School of Applied Computing are fantastic – I would recommend the course, the university, everything.”
