I came to Maynooth a few years ago to study for a Higher Diploma in Information Technology and later for a Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Software Engineering). Over the years I've found Maynooth to have the most supportive and approachable staff, whether it is the Lecturers in the Computer Science department or the staff that work in catering, there is always someone around who can help you. As a student at Maynooth, many options are available to you for spending your spare time. With activities provided such as the archery club and swimming, you can develop your skills and capabilities at what you enjoy. For those who wish to strive further there are opportunities to compete for Maynooth against other colleges. After my time in Maynooth I took a position with BT, in Belfast, on their graduate programme. I have now been on the programme for a year and have reached the role of Lead Developer.
