BSc. Applied Psychology Graduate 2019
My name is Aaron Jacob. I am currently studying Applied Psychology in Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology (IADT), graduating class of 2020.
This course has allowed me to study two Technology modules each year while still achieving a Psychology degree accredited by the Psychology Society of Ireland (PSI).
Some of these modules:
- Web Applications and Content Management
- Human Computer Interaction
- Information Design and Multimedia
Complimented by Psychology modules such as:
- Personality & Individual Differences
- Social Psychology
- Research Methods & Statistics
I am interested in pursuing a career in the industry of User Experience Research/Design, and my studies have afforded me the unique advantage of learning about both the how’s and the why’s of User-Centred design.
Over the last 3 years I have developed and honed my skills in prototyping, wire-framing, user-research, user testing and user-based design. I have become proficient in software such as Invision and Photoshop, as well as CMS websites such as WordPress and Wix.
I am an earnest and enthusiastic worker, with a well-nurtured creative streak and an almost-pedantically-keen eye for detail. I love striving to solve problems as part of a group or independently. I enjoy interacting with others and meeting new people.
