Internship Pays Off

Press Release   •   Nov 29, 2013 12:53 GMT

Borwell  are so proud of Software Engineer Sam Williams - a rather shy student who joined the company in July 2011 - for achieving the award for ‘Best 3rd Year Project in Computing’ from University of Worcester.

Sam was studying a 3 year computing degree at University of Worcester. He chose to take a year out to spend a year applying his skills to the real workplace.  He joined borwell, a small software house based in the Malvern Hills Science Park and is now reaping the rewards of that audacious decision.

The year spent at borwell (2011-2012) allowed Sam to develop, not only his software programming skills, but more importantly, his self-confidence and team –working skills. 

He returned to University in September 2012 with a clear idea of his career path.  Borwell sponsored Sam’s final year, giving Sam financial security and allowing him to focus on his course-work. 

Sam said, “I was able to secure a 1st class BSc Honours Degree in Computing in July 2013.  I am very grateful to Andrea & Steve for their advice and support.  This achievement would not have been possible without the skills I learned from the borwell team on my placement year.”
