(Student Profile)

Ronald Nsabiyera

Having worked for a few years as a software developer, I felt there was a knowledge gap. MSc. Advanced Computer Science was a perfect match. I love the fact that the course covers a wide spectrum in Computer Science and yet a student can choose a specific path of their choice. From a software engineering point of view, the course has not only filled the knowledge gaps I had, but also exposed me to several areas in software engineering I did not know existed.
