Student Profile

Jie Dai

Graduated in 2020

I made my best decision to choose to study at the University of Sheffield as an MSc student in Information Management. In the year I have not only extended my academic vision and gained many technical skills, but stored a wonderful memory in Sheffield as well.

Firstly, I have to say I believe that the Information School is worthy of its ranking. All the teaching staff in the School are experts in the academic field, using their understanding and experience, trying to illustrate complex concepts in a way that’s easy to understand.

The modules in the Information School have a wide range of theoretical and practical elements. The choice of optional modules is quite wide, from database design to business intelligence. It can suit students from different backgrounds and interests. If you want to learn some program coding skills, the technical team will also be there to help. As for myself, I enjoyed the Python program and Visualization best among all of the modules.

Nowadays, I miss the department building and Wednesday meetings. I miss Dr Peter’s cunning ideas in the Database Course. I also miss the opportunity to play basketball with a range of international students in Goodwin each Sunday. Although the University and department tried their best to make our study comfortable, it’s hard to avoid missing the beautiful life studying in modern classrooms.

I am now an employee of a famous manufacturing company. As a support engineer in intelligent manufacturing, I need to be familiar with our databases and systems. The knowledge which Peter taught in the Database course should be highly recommended if anyone wants to be involved in any work related to database and informaton systems.

Besides that, I am also asked to play several product manager roles in my work. So all of the knowledge I got in Sheffiled has helped me a lot when dealing with non-IT worker requirements. The knowledge management ideas taught on the Information Management course should also be inspiring to a great many people since this is a big area for future development.

If you have the chance of coming to study in Information School in Sheffield, I highly recommend you coming and see what you can find here. You will never regret the choice you’ve made studying here!
