Student Testimonial: 
Rachel Slater 
Job title: Software Engineer @ Microsoft Vancouver & Seattle 
Graduated in 2017, MSc Computer Science 
UCL IXN projects: 
My final summer (independent) project, facilitated by IXN, was in partnership with UCLH PEACH Reality (Platform for Enhanced Analytics and Computational Healthcare) and Microsoft - I built a genome browser application for the HoloLens (mixed reality) device. 
I also worked on a mid-year group project, which involved building a prototype portal for IXN to display projects & work delivered via these student-industry partnerships. 

How did the UCL IXN deepen your technical understanding? 
The IXN final summer project presented me with an opportunity to truly dive in the deep end with exciting technology, which was brand-new to me. As it was an independent project, it became critical to get good at reading documentation, understanding the fundamentals, and effectively problem-solving. The project was fast-paced, and my application had a number of challenging deliverables. The experience of developing a successful HoloLens application taught me so much technically, but also built confidence in what I was capable of. 

How did this impact your understanding of Computer Science? 
My IXN final summer project involved building a brand-new HoloLens application, and the lack of legacy code, existing architecture, or design paradigms, meant that I had to research this myself from the outset. This contributed to my fundamental understanding of CS & Software Engineering, and these skills have stood the test of time - they continue to be relevant in my current engineering role. 

Any further notes? 
Deciding to pursue the Computer Science Master's at UCL was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I've made. It truly set me up for the great career I have now. The IXN program was fundamental to this. I'm extremely grateful!
