Jonas Johansson

Did the programme meet your expectations?
It started off the way I thought it would and then it expanded into new subjects and I never really expected that there would be so much I needed to learn, as I knew people who did the same programme earlier. But on the whole, it was much more interesting than I anticipated.

What is the most exciting thing you have done during your studies (for example, any specific course, project, internship etc.)? Tell us about that.
Work Integrated Learning. This can be a valuable experience, both in a good and bad sense, but all experiences like this were good to have when getting out in real-world IT companies. For example, we were in contact with a company where that person had no idea what product was needed. This gave us the chance to help that company to figure out its needs and desires to be able to provide the service they intended to. This made the planned assignment of programming change more of a documentation and real-life scenario of the many roles within IT.

How do you think studying here at University West and your programme can help you to reach your goals?
Well, this position wouldn’t have been possible without these studies, but also this University and this programme are held in high regard among many companies, which makes it a perfect thing to talk about when at interviews. The programme actually has many variations to suit what you want to become and learn more about by way of various courses, it is possibile to work at a company during the term and such. And to be honest, the teachers motivated me to learn more and the whole experience made me want to continue my studies.
