Ari's story

Information and Communications Technology

School of Computing and Digital Technology

Among BSc (Hons) Information and Communications Technology student Arithran Thurairetnam's best moments at Birmingham City University, he recalls a hackathon, when his team came second overall. In a hackathon, students are given 24 hours to solve a problem, which enables them to learn from each other and gain new skills.

Ari, as he is best known, relaxes by playing video games with University friends during his spare time. Thanks to the support he has received from his lecturers, he believes he is now a much more confident person.

Ari loves the modern facilities at Millennium Point and he feels that his course is preparing him for the future in his chosen career, as there is a focus in engaging with prospective employers.
