TESTIMONIALS
TING SHI JIN
Bachelor of Software Engineering (Hons)

"Studying in Taylor’s University has been a life-changing experience for me. The turning point in my life is when I helped Microsoft to encourage and teach people to learn coding and promote computer science at WeSpeakCode. This gave me a global exposure by meeting President Barack Obama and entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley. The lecturers have been very supportive when it comes to participating in competitions. You will get to learn from real life and practical experiences. These opportunities lay all around us, you just have to step out of your comfort zone and seize them."

"My learning experience at SoCIT has been a positive one. I had the chance to attend many school-held collaborative events with industry leaders such as Microsoft and PwC which gave me valuable insights into the fast-paced computing industry. All my lecturers have been incredibly supportive in helping me cultivate ideas and putting my ideas out there to get a taste of entrepreneurship as well as to build networks with people within and out of Taylor’s University. They provide me with feedback on any obstacles that I might face or any inquiries that I might have."

"Taylor’s University has provided me with the tools necessary to face the professional life. I was given the opportunity to participate in a Startup Competition by MDEC and I’m honoured to have come in 3rd place. Taylor’s University currently has its very first technology club which was started by a Final Year student and they host a yearly Hackathon called ImagineHack; a 24-hour non-stop coding event whereby likeminded individuals will come together to create innovative solutions and developing them into mobile applications! It is one of the best times of the year!"
