Self-confessed tech junkie, Kirolos Kaldas, always wanted to know how things worked, but studying the Bachelor of Software Engineering is showing him how to make his own innovations.
Bachelor of Software Engineering
Don’t limit yourself to the things you learn in your lectures. Do your own research, start your own projects and never stop challenging yourself to learn something new.
I was drawn to software engineering as I’m a bit of a tech junkie. I decided it was time to find out how all these systems work and play a part in technology’s innovation.
I chose RMIT University after my research showed that it would be the best place to study my course, providing me with the resources to build my knowledge and gain industry experience.
The software engineering program at RMIT includes a year-long industry experience which I’m fortunate enough to be currently doing at a software company called Leidos.
I’ve really learned a lot from the opportunities RMIT gives you to develop your own projects. One of the most interesting involved connecting two different technologies, controlling a Lego robot arm with your own muscle movement using a Myo armband, which allows a person to control the robot arm with their own arm muscle movement.
My advice to future students is: don’t limit yourself to the things you learn in your lectures. Do your own research, start your own projects and never stop challenging yourself to learn something new.
