Jye Woon, a TARCian alumnus and senior UX designer with Acteos Software Agency based in Dusseldorf, Germany.
If you ask Jye Woon years ago if he ever thought of building a career in Germany, it would probably be the last thing on his mind. But that was what the former TAR UC student did, who is currently a senior UX designer at Acteos Software Agency based in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Jye Woon studied at the then TAR College in 2009 and was enrolled in the Advanced Diploma in Multimedia Design programme. After that he chose to further his studies at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK for Bachelor (Hons) in Digital Media Design under the Top-Up Summer Semester programme.
An excellent academic performance earned Jye Woon a full scholarship to do the Master of Arts in Media Arts and Design programme with Macromedia Hochschule für Medien und Kommunikation, Germany. During the two-year programme, he completed his Master’s thesis in the field of “Big Data-Driven Design”.
Despite having achieved so much, Jye Woon is still grateful to TAR UC, claiming it is because of TAR UC’s education that he is able to become the person he is today.
“TAR UC’s teaching staff is 100% dedicated and caring professionals who work hard to ensure each and every student reaches their potentials. For me, my lecturers helped me in discovering my passion in Design and Media Technologies. The projects I did in TAR College also helped prepare me for the challenges of the real working environment.”
On his advice to anyone who is considering enrolling at TAR UC, he said, “Studying at the then TAR College has not only led me to a successful career path but had also given me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gain experience and exposure that has transformed my life. I encourage others to join TAR UC and make the most of their learning experience as a TAR UC student.”
“Looking back, I am truly grateful that TAR College has opened doors for me to discover and maximise my creative talents,” he added.
