Andrew's story

Andrew Watkinson BSc  Computer Science

"I would like to get into NASA to do programming for their satellites or rocket launches."

I used to want to be an astrophysicist, but due to A Level grades I went into Computer Science. I would like to get into NASA to do programming for their satellites or rocket launches. Other than that, I might go into game design trying to programme new AI, or going into AI entirely. Helping to make artificial intelligence beat the Turing test and things like that.

I  do have a small business for my photography but I only offer it to people I know personally. I did a wedding for a friend, it’s more about giving people favours. I’m in the photography society, so I was asked to do a photoshoot of the pantomime for advertising. Seeing everyone dressed up in their costumes, doing whacky poses, made me laugh.

I did karate for ten years before I got my black belt, so I feel that was quite an accomplishment in my life. My motto would be keep pushing forward. I don’t ever want to stop trying to do better than I already am.
