BSc (Hons) Computer Systems

2015-2019

In 2019, I finished my undergrad and graduated with a BSc (Hons) Computer Systems degree at Heriot-Watt University. In these four years, I found my keen interest in creative and design-oriented aspects of modern technology. The project summaries contained here provide a glimpse of some of the courses where I built the foundations of my learning journey to better understand the world of design.

The most exciting thing is that this journey has continued to date, and I hope to find more opportunities to keep honing my skills as I contribute to the world of design and technology.
