Lecturers or research scientists?
As well as teaching you, lecturers do research. They are making a difference to the world around us by coming up with new ways to use computers. In the School we have people looking at how to allow robots to express human emotion and using beat tracking to sychronise computers with live music performance. Being taught by someone who is changing the world with his or her ideas ensures that you are totally up to date in the subject.

Software Engineering jobs are booming generally, but they need someone like me with the usability skills I learnt on the course.
I’m from India where I did a 4 year Batchelor of Engineering Computer Science course before working for a year as a software engineer. The QMUL modules fitted the skills I was interested in advancing - specifically Interactive Systems Design and Entrepreneurship. They are really useful for when I go back to work. When I return home I now think I will get a job in usability. There is a really important niche that few people have the skills for. I can now fill that niche!
Guliman, Jayashree and LiShiang were on the winning team for coursework project as part of the Interactive Systems Design Course. Their design and a longer interview with them can be found on the pages of cs4fn.
