When she completed the program, Noel moved on to work as an intern in the ICT department of Radio Africa Group Limited (a media company), later upon her graduation, she was promoted to an ICT graduate trainee. Noel loved the applied use of her talents and found herself heading to AIMS Senegal to broaden her understanding of technology.
Noel credits her success to the exposure of exceptional lecturers from around the world who challenged her perceptions about math, technology and computer programming. Today, she is pursuing her Masters of Engineering in Telecommunications & Information Security (MTIS) at the University of Victoria in Canada.
Noel confirms that getting a better understanding of computer software and hardware, learning some techniques of how hackers exploit vulnerabilities in machines and how to detect intrusion and prevent it, were key factors to pursuing her latest degree.
