Bachelor of Information Technology

My journey into the IT industry started at AIS. The quality and practical aspects of the programme were the reasons I chose to study the Bachelor of Information Technology.

The programme offered me a great opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of how the IT industry affects society, and practical skills in the IT field. The knowledge and skills I gained at AIS helped me develop confidence, which in turn enabled me to secure a good position with one of the most promising IT companies in Auckland.

I currently work as a developer for BuzzTasker Ltd and my job responsibilities range from the presentation layer using JavaScript, jQuery and Ajax, to server coding with C#, ASP.NET and ADO.NET, plus database design and development. As a result of my studies at AIS, we have created a web-based application:

A large part of my success can be attributed to my lecturers who were very supportive throughout my studies at AIS.
