Swansea Graduation Grief

11 July 2008. 1 Comment

Although I have become accustomed to disappointment with my final year at university, graduation arrangements have proved the final straw. Traditionally held in Swansea’s Brangwyn Hall, the graduation is supposed to be the highlight of our university lives. My parents both graduated from Swansea University (or University College, Swansea as it was back then) in […]

MEng Computing with Upper Second Class Hons.

29 June 2008. 1 Comment

After 4 years of lectures, coursework, projects, dissertations and exams, its finally time for me to enter the real world.  My time at Swansea University has come to an end. Just over a week ago I was given the result of all this hard work – a Master of Engineering in Computing with Upper Second […]

Website Accessibility Part 2

3 May 2007

Some of you might remember that I posted an entry back in March about website accessibility and a motion I was raising in the Student General Meeting (SGM) at university. Essentially, the motion was designed to push the Students’ Union and the university to improve the accessibility of their various websites. The first attempt at […]

For those that don’t know, the Comp Sci department at Swansea organise a trip to Gregynog in […]

Dissertation

15 October 2006

I’ve been having a lot of fun this weekend.  I’ve had a 20 page initial document for my dissertation on Web Services to write.  I’m still not there, but I’m getting close.  It is actually a quite nice topic to research (especially since it directly relates to my job and what I want to do […]

Waterfront is finally live

30 September 2006

It’s been a very busy week. Last Friday I moved from home in Abergavenny to the new flat in Swansea. In the rush I forgot half of the stuff I meant to bring down, so next weekend I’ll be going back home to collect it all. Unlike last year, I didn’t get much time to […]
