What students and graduates have to say
Life isn’t about setting limits upon yourself …
It’s about breaking glass ceilings YOU set …
Surrounding yourself with people who wish the best for YOU …
Driving YOU to surpass limits YOU could only dream of!
Keith Vella Licari MSc Information Security BSc (Hons) Computing & Information Systems
First Class Honours in undergraduate, and Distinction in Masters
Jean Carl Grech BSc (Hons) in Creative Computing
First Class (Hons)
I was employed as a clerk in the civil service when I embarked on my Diploma in Creative Computing. My life has rocketed since that day in 2012!
I ventured to participate in the GameDev challenge which gave me useful experience and insight in the Software Development Life Cycle which landed me a job with Intelligent Payments Group as a Quality Assurance Tester! Thanks to my courses in Java I was also able to build automated test programs using Selenium. The courses in eCommerce, Interaction Design, Advanced Graphics, Creative Computing and Project Management inspired me to go a step further in my career and perform Business Analysis work within the company and after a few months, I was officially promoted to a Business Analyst! Of course my role has changed but I still keep Quality at heart because it is one of the most important aspects in the development cycle.
Among other roles I am assigned to gather requirements for new projects, perform data mining (SQL), build software mock-ups, flow diagrams (UML) and communicate directly with the clients to ensure that the project scope is well established and defined — all topics which are covered in the Creative Computing course at SMI.
My advice — if you have the passion — believe in yourself, take the plunge and get your IT career started — the adventure starts at SMI #StartMyInspiration.
And my next step … own a Ferrari!
