Real world experience that encourages innovation
I have long been passionate about all things computers. As I have gotten older, my passion within the industry has shifted towards providing security consulting, largely due to the direction and confidence instilled within me when completing my Diploma of IT course. Now that I am at university I continue to stay in contact with my teachers who remain interested and by my side should I need to call upon them for their practical, real world experience.
