Kade (24) from Maybole in Ayrshire, collected his degree, alongside 157 of his peers, at the UWS graduation ceremony on the morning of Thursday 8th November at the Hamilton Town House. Right Honourable Dame Elish Angiolini, UWS Chancellor presided over the ceremony with Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal & Vice-Chancellor of UWS giving the main address.
Commenting on his time at UWS, Kade, who was also shortlisted as a finalist in the Young Software Engineer of the Year Award 2018 for his work on optical character recognition and workflow automation, said: “I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to undertake the Graduate Apprenticeship programme at UWS - it was a fantastic experience and has enabled me to take my career to the next level.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the programme and everyone involved. The level of trust, independence, but at the same time, support I was given has and will continue to shape my future professional career. From being nominated for the YSE award to maintaining high grades, I have no doubt that without being part of this programme, I wouldn’t be in the position I find myself today.”
