Student Case Studies:
“What I like about CamTec IT is that ever since I have been small I have always been very fond of computers and how they work and this subject allows me to find out more about them. I also enjoy playing games and wish to carry on with this as a career in the future so that I can become a successful games designer, and some elements of this are included in the course too. The staff are very friendly here and the environment is comfortable and sociable. I’d definitely recommend it.”
Mohinur hopes to pursue a career as a Games Designer when he leaves College.
