“Thanks to the Academy and Kainos MAP, I’ve completed an MSc in Applied Cyber Security at Queen’s University Belfast. It covered ground-breaking areas like network digital forensics,cryptography, and digital ethics. Kainos covered my time and fees to attend the degree and I’ve absolutely loved every minute of it. It was hard work, but it’s opened up a great new career pathway for me and given me the opportunity to lead on Cyber Security within Kainos.”

Principal Architect

“I did my placement year here and was offered a full-time job upon completion of my degree. As a graduate at Kainos it’s safe to say I’ve achieved a lot. Since returning, I’ve project managed Kainos AppCamp, delivered Kainos A.I.Camp, trained our CEO in machine learning, and now I’m working with customers using new and exciting technologies.”

“I took full advantage of Kainos Academy. I did my work experience at Kainos and then went to CodeCamp where I heard about the company’s Earn as you Learn scheme. I applied and got a place. It’s amazing – I got my tuition fees paid, a full salary and a job at the end of it. Altogether, it’s worth up to £100,000! In 2017, I got the chance to return to my Kainos Academy roots and coordinated CodeCamp. It’s been a whirlwind few years, and I’ve loved every minute.”
