Software development course leads to exciting new start-up company
We asked some of our students what they thought about their experience at The Manchester College. Here’s what Orben Soares Bom Jesus, who is studying Computing and IT, had to say:
In just two years this course has changed my life. I have learnt how to program, had industrial experience at a market-leading company and am now the CEO of my own start-up company, doing what I love. I plan on getting a master’s in computer science and becoming a software architect and will be attending King’s College London this year.
During his time at The Manchester College, Orben secured offers at two prestigious universities (Kings College London & Lancaster University) to study a Master's degree in Computer Science. He has also created his own software development company developing creative and interactive content such as iOS apps, web sites and online social trading communities.
Orber’s work placement at Amaze LTD also saw him be crowned the winner for the most innovative iOS app, which secured the offer of an internship. He's now spoilt for choice with a wealth of future opportunities in front of him.
