    After you graduate, which area of the IT industry do you seek to get a job in?

    As for myself, I might get into networking, programming (if i like it) or something to do with Hardware on a higher level than technician.

    Im hoping to do a degree in Business Information Technology and after this hope to combine my business knowledge with my IT to built specialist systems for businesses. Alternatively I may go into database administration!

    Ideally I want to do something with the more creative aspects of computing such as animation, graphics etc...but I imagine when I graduate I will look for a job with an IT Consultancy.

    I'd like to be a security architect, software security engineer or a security researcher. I guess at the moment I'm a software engineer, but only for the summer, it's fairly fun but I'd rather be specialising.

    RealVNC [www.realvnc.com] doing C++ for a european funded project they're contributing to. It's pretty fun, I think I'm getting towards the end of the current project so I'm looking forward to the next. It's good experience and something I really need on the cv. Doing programming as a 10-6 job is completely different to how I've programmed in the past and I'm not loathing it so I guess that's a good thing considering my chosen career!

    I also now know more about the VNC system and how it's coded than I'll likely ever need to know again.

    Indeed, he's only come to the office once though. Did you take comm eng options? He's the next head of the computer lab now the lab and the LCE seem to be merging.

    Actually it was whilst studying VNC during second year and playing around with the source code that I decided that I didn't want to do Comms any more! :eek:

    The Eng Dept are a bit disappointed that we're losing him but I don't blame him really. Engineering Department Vs Computer Lab Building? No contest really!

    I'm now really quite familiar with the source and the protocol, mainly in how to abuse it to reach my goals though. Nothing I've done so far is likely to be available in the open source version, in the near future anyhow. It's really quite useful to have the main perpetrator (Tristan) in the office next door when you're trying to write code that uses it!

    Well the LCE has been based at the gates building since it opened, it's only the next logical conclusion that we should subsume it totally.

    I'd love to be a driver-writer for big video chip company like NVIDIA or ATI. It might however require too much electrical engineering knowledge (not sure, if I stick to *only* writing drivers maybe I could make it).

    Game programming - who wouldn't like to? But the pay is low, the hours are immense and its sooooo (add 50 more 'o's to that) difficult to get into the industry and stay there.

    Alternatively, to start, any big non-business related software project (take Windows for example, or a digital camera interface, software used in crash-test simulations) is good to me.

    But I need to get through college first. ;-)
