Studying this MSc within one year I specialised in UI/UX and application security. This course provided me the opportunity to build projects in Ruby, C#, Java and Flash. I also had the opportunity to hone my skills for user journeys with a UML module. Graduating in 2008 I feel this course really helped to kick start my career.
This course provided me with my first platform to work with a variety of programming languages from Visual Basic, HTML, CSS and PHP.
