Gino was delighted to obtain a full-year work-placement offer from IBM.
Prior to coming to Worcester, Gino completed a BTEC in Information Technology. Since studying for his BSc (Hons) degree at the University of Worcester, Gino’s academic achievements have been top-notch, becoming one of the University Academic Award winners for Computing in October 2016. According to his lecturer in web design and development “Gino’s development of the CSS and HTML has gone beyond the limits of the tasks taught; he has been able to offer a much-extended interpretation”.
Gino’s high scores and excellent interview really impressed IBM, where he will be trained to use Python - a high-tech language that will be new to Gino and add to his skillset and future employability.
Gino came to university with no knowledge of object-oriented programming knowledge or concepts. He feels the excellent teaching and experiences in multiple modules has helped him go above his expectations in achieving a prestigious Computing placement.
