Jasjoot Mudhar graduated from Greenwich University and is a proud East Londoner. Jasjoot was a keen ambassador for the London 2012 Olympic Games, and volunteered as an Olympic flower and medal bearer for Bradley Wiggins. Following the games, Jasjoot has continued to support the regeneration of East London and attended the Inspiring Success programme delivered by Loughborough University London and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC). As a result, Jasjoot was selected as one of ten East London graduates to receive 100% scholarship to study with Loughborough University London.
Why Loughborough University London?
I have been a supporter of the 2012 Olympic Games since London won the bid back in 2007. I am constantly inspired by the regeneration I can see taking place in my hometown and when I heard Loughborough University was supporting the drive for change, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
I was amazed to find Loughborough University London was working in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), who are managing the redevelopment of East London following the success of the London Olympics. I attended the two day ‘Inspiring Success’ programme offered by Loughborough University London and LLDC and decided to apply for MSc Media Clouds with Business as a result. This programme delivers the very latest in technology research and teaching; I couldn’t think of a better course to develop my skills and help me achieve my aim of working in the specialist technology and internet services sector.
What are you most looking forward to about the programme?
I really want to get started and begin learning new things and developing new skills. I want to be a specialist in Internet data and media cloud technology. With this programme, I will be in a position to lead the internet and technical data sector which will make me highly employable.
What attracted you to the course?
I liked the sound of the varied and innovative modules available. Having something like the collaborative project on my CV will be an amazing asset when it comes to applying for roles, particularly in a sector that is so highly specialised. The collaborative project is great because I will work with students who I would never normally interact with during my studies, like designers and entrepreneurs. We will be working together to solve a real business problem from one of the University’s partners, which could be Barclays, Decathlon, Speedo, IBM or hundreds of others! I can’t wait to engage with the company my group will be assigned and learn from my peers.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I want to be settled in a senior level position in the media clouds industry. I have never had the security of a permanent role and I am hoping that in five years time, this will have changed. I’d also like to think I’d be in a position to start looking for a house and maybe even be married!
