In addition to a wide and interesting range of taught course units, I am currently writing a thesis which has allowed me to focus on a specific area of Computer Science, developing my skills in analysis and planning.
The staff in the department have been helpful and inspiring, and are there to provide guidance and support when necessary. As well as a personal and project supervisor, Informatics students have access to extensive support networks provided by the Student's Union and Careers Service. King's proximity to the City of London makes it a great place to launch a career, and has been of great help to me in securing a position in my chosen field of Information Forensics and Cybercrime.
After my Bachelors in Information Technology, I wanted to undertake a MSc in Computer Science. I started with online research on courses offered by UK universities - looking out for a significant course at an eminent university. I learnt about "Computing, IT Law and Management" at King's College London and pursuing this course was the obvious choice for me.
With so many engineers graduating every year, I wanted to do something unique and different. I browsed through the modules offered by this course including: "IT Law for IT Professionals", "Intelligent Systems for Legal and Administrative Applications" and modules on Computer Security. I knew that these were what I needed to enhance my technical skills. The modules were the right mixture of computing and management concepts, and with the exposure to Information Technology Law, this course has moulded me into a well equipped software engineer. True to my expectations, the modules offered were one of a kind - interesting and inspiring. As a student of the Department of Informatics I also got the opportunity to attend the "Spring School on Security".
My overall experience at the University and in the Department of Informatics has been of the highest quality.
