Student review
The course was well structured covering off an extensive list of different subject and topics many of which were relevant to working in the industry today. The teaching staff were always willing to help guide and support you if you were willing to put in the hard work. The degree itself didn’t help me get a job but the internship opportunities both local and international definitely did.

Good balance between practical and theory based knowledge. The TRI project that students endured throughout the second semester provided me with insight into what industry is like and the tasks that are involved. It provided me with a sense of direction in determining what career I would like to acquire after my studies.

Student review
We learnt a lot of different skills related to the industry. After graduating it was very hard to find work in the industry, perhaps help in applying for jobs would be beneficial.
