Adam Lowe is a graduate student of the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and is returning for this year to complete his level 8 degree. Adam told us that the relationships he made with great friends and top quality lecturers along with the excellent facilities are some of the reasons he decided to return.
What attracted you to study at Waterford Institute of Technology?
I chose WIT because it’s a well-known institute in Ireland, very highly established and highly known. I’ve heard good things about WIT and I decided it would be the best for me to come here.
I made great friends along the way, the lecturers are top quality, they really take care of you when it comes to asking for help on anything, they’ll never leave you on your own, they are a great bunch of lecturers.
How did work placement add to your college experience?
Adam did his work placement in HCS Business Solutions in Waterford, he spoke more about this experience: "The placement I took part in really helped me time management and project management, and it really helped me with my college work coming into fourth year. During my placement I was mostly in tech support on the helpdesk or I was working with them, Tech-watch."
How do you feel about graduating this year?
I feel great, I feel like I finally got the reward that I’ve been working towards for the last three years and hopefully next year it’ll be the same. I’ve had a lovely time over the last three years, I’m enjoying the fourth year at the moment, everyone is very kind, and the lecturers are looking out for me. The food is fantastic in the bistro. I’ve had a wonderful time in WIT, I’ve grown in the last three years and I have WIT to thank for it.
What advice would you give to someone that is interested in your course?
The course I’m doing is fairly complicated there’s a lot on the technical side like programming, networking and stuff like that but I would always advise to study hard on that stuff. I would always advise looking up the course because it can be a lot for some people, myself I can say I didn’t fly through it right away, I struggled a bit, I’ve done my fair share of repeats. I could always go to the Computing and Maths Learning Centre, I could go to any of my lecturers and ask for help and they would be more than willing to help me out anytime.
