Projects

My studies involved a number of projects in Networking, Media, Interactive Technologies and Web Designing & Scripting through which I acquired practical skills. A sample of my projects can be found in my Portfolio. 

For one of the projects I published an advertisement for Middlesex University which was then chosen by them to be reproduced and aired on multiple digital media: TV, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. The university, once again, recently promoted the original video on Facebook. ( www.facebook.com/mdxmalta/posts/1576830072534170 )

My thesis aimed at providing planning guidelines and design considerations for the implementation or upgrade of a Campus-wide Wi-Fi network. Apart from the thorough investigation of related literature technologies and products, I carried out a user needs and expectations survey to establish and meet the requirements of an institution, the user and a robust network.
