Justin - Computer Science
Studied: BSc(Hons) Computer Science.
Justin had a clear idea of where he wanted to do his placement. His focus led to a successful year and a great start to his career.
“The lecturers gave me the confidence to aim high. Placements with IBM, Microsoft and Intel were within my reach. But my real goal was CERN, the European organisation for nuclear research, home of the Large Hadron Collider. I spent a year there, and it was the most academically productive time I’ve had.
“Since leaving university, I’ve been offered a Fellowship at CERN and have continued to develop my career in the field of big data computing with a high-energy physics twist.”
