HND Computing Personal Statement
Since first being able to play on "Paint box" at lower school, I have always had a fond interest in computers. My decision to study computing at higher education level was an easy one. Firstly, I love using computers; in fact I am renowned as a bit of a computer trouble-shooter amongst my friends. Secondly it is my most successful subject. This is clearly shown from the outstanding grade B I achieved in my AS practical coursework module, which I thoroughly enjoyed completing.
Once completing my studies, I would hope to work in part of an ICT technical support team. As part of my work experience, I joined the ICT team at a local business where I was given lots of responsibility for ensuring backups were complete considering I was only a year ten student! As well as this I was also involved with the repair of computers and training some members of staff on new procedures.
Through my current studies, I have learnt many cross subject skills, as well as specific knowledge that relates to each module. For Example, I have learnt presentation skills and improved report writing skills throughout my subjects.
In design, I am currently making an office desk, which I thoroughly enjoy. During the design process of this process of this project I was able to use Pro-Desktop, a piece of software which allows you to create 3D rendered drawings. I think that using ICT in this way has lead to a significant improvement in my work. In Media Studies, I have developed my analytical skills, through comparing the view part of different films.
My current study of ICT is focused around a problem solution at the minute. From a previous job, I have decided to make a database system for ordering supplies for a pharmacy.
Through a part-time job at a local chemist, I have improved my confidence by talking to customers and helping them make a decision over their purchase. I was also given the responsibility handling cash through the operation of a till. I also have been given the responsibility of being a key holder to the shop.
In my spare time, I am involved with the scouts. I am currently working towards my Duke of Edinburgh Silver award where I am organising a 30 Mile hike for between 4-7 people. This will aid me in planning things in later life.
Overall I believe that a university education is an excellent way into the ICT industry and would love to be given the opportunity to study at your establishment.
