Paula Clerkin
BSc Computer Science with Artifical Intelligence
I graduated from Nottingham with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence. Since graduating, I have been working at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) of the Ministry of Defence, following their graduate scheme. My role as a Computer Scientist within the Counter Terrorism and Security division encompasses everything I learned in my degree particularly problem solving, agile development, working in mixed ability teams and software quality and best practices. I had a wonderful time studying at Nottingham and it has prepared me extremely well for my career in science research and cutting edge technology.

MSc Computer Science and Entrepreneurship 2013
BSc (Hons) Computer Science 2012

I graduated with a BSc in Computer Science in 2012 and then went on to pursue a MSc in Computer Science & Entrepreneurship, graduating in 2013. Since graduating I have been working at J.P. Morgan on the Technology Graduate Scheme. My role at the company as a Software Engineer in Markets and Core Processing utilises many of the skills that I learned at University, in particular, agile development practices, leadership skills, working in Technology teams and numerous hard skills. At both undergraduate and postgraduate level Nottingham has prepared me extremely well for a career at a fast paced and leading edge technology environment.

BSc (Hons) Computer Science 2013
I graduated from Nottingham in 2013 having completed my BSc in Computer Science with a one year industrial placement. I am now working as a software engineer for the company with which I completed my placement year. I really enjoyed studying computer science and I know that without the three years spent at Nottingham I wouldn’t be in such a good career position. The placement year was invaluable – It gave me a chance to develop my skills in a real working environment and see how things are done on an enterprise scale. On returning for my final year I had a much stronger focus and motivation to succeed in getting the grade that I wanted. I regularly find that I am using knowledge that I learned whilst studying, and I feel that I have a strong foundation in Computer Science that I’m sure I will continue to use for the rest of my career.
