Adam’s passion for programming led him to enrol in a Bachelor of Science in Games Development at UTS.
I’ve always played video games and loved them since I was a child. After trying out some online programming courses and enjoying the experience—“it was one of those moments in life where things just clicked". I decided to study full time, which eventually led to the UTS course.
One of the biggest surprises I found about studying programming was that you didn’t have to be a maths genius to do it.
That’s what I thought from the beginning. I’ve always loved computers but assumed that computer science or programming were beyond me. I wasn’t terrible at maths, but wasn’t great—and I had no love for it.
Luckily, through the Bachelor of Science in Games Development I experienced programming from a creative angle by manipulating pixels and images on screen. The maths has slowly crept up over time, but I’ve found that now I can visualise it as I’ve seen it in practice. It makes a huge difference. My passion is in programming, and games development has been the cherry on top.
