Software Engineer, Aspire Systems Consulting Pte. Ltd

Believing that there was an increasing demand for labour in the IT sector, I chose to broaden my knowledge in two specialisations, Computer Science and Cyber Forensics. As a Software Engineer today, I can actively apply the coding skills and computer science principles gleaned during my studies to code and create progressive software compliant with coding standards.

Gaining a recognised Double Major Degree from Murdoch, which is accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS), further affirms that choosing Murdoch University has been the best decision I have made.
