Back to University

Well I start back at Strathclyde tomorrow, well kind of; I have a first day meeting at 10.30am! Yes, 10.30am.

I have changed courses from BSc Hons Software Engineering to BSc Science Studies (Computer Science), as well as being only 3 years, as opposed to the original 5 of Software Engineering, meaning assuming all goes well, I will be able to graduate next summer! It also seems to be far better, it allows me to pick classes I want to do, rather than having to do ones specified by the department.

I haven’t totally abandoned Software Engineering; I am doing 4 of the 3rd year computing science classes, and 5 classes from random departments in the university.

My curriculum for the next year looks like this (unless I change it again);

  • How things work
  • Databases
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Introduction to Business Management
  • Economics 1
  • Communications
  • Graphics
  • Introduction to forensic science
  • Entrepreneurship: Starting an Internet based business

As well as this, I am also taking part in the University Newspaper ‘The Strathclyde Telegraph’ as online editor, which has me in charge of the website at

So, its off to work for me now, ta ta.
