With final timetables published today I'm getting a real sense and excitement about the new semester which starts next Monday. Similar to last year, I will have Higher Certificate in Computing (level 6) students, BSc in Computing (level 8), BSc in Technology Management (level 8), and Higher Diploma in Data Analytics (level 8) students this year. Students come to College for many different reasons, but in the end the outcome is the same - a precious degree/diploma/certificate in your fist at Graduation. So is it worth having a degree? Especially in an IT discipline?

A degree of any type does not guarantee a successful future. An IT degree does not mean you will end up a billionaire. But the signs today are good for graduates, and I hope that all who are starting or continuing on degree programmes next week at NCI or any other College will get what they want from earning a degree. Ultimately it is a badge of achievement that nobody can take away from you, but it how you use it that counts.
