I started working at EIT in 1990 and worked for several years as the IT Services Manager. Later, I joined the computing school, teaching on the Bachelor of Computing Systems when it launched at EIT in 2000. My teaching currently includes IT Management and E-Business on the BCS degree and Strategic IT Management on EIT's new postgraduate Diploma of IT.
All computing degree and specialist diploma programmes include an industry based project providing those nearing graduation with an opportunity to work with industry either as an intern in an IT company or working with a commercial organisation on a specific project.
