Caitlin Goodale - BA (Hons) Computer Arts

Caitlin Goodale will graduate from Abertay on 7 July with a BA (Hons) in Computer Arts.  Brought up on both sides of the Atlantic - Fife and California - she has secured a position in Malmö and will be moving to Sweden after graduation.

Why Abertay?

I knew I wanted to study a degree that combined both art and technical disciplines. I also loved games, and Abertay had a great reputation in this area. Because the course had Skillset accreditation, I knew my degree was relevant to industry. That employability focus really persuaded me.

What's next?

I'm moving to Malmö, Sweden, where I've been offered a job at King (makers of Candy Crush, Farm Heroes, Pet Rescue Saga, etc.) as a Junior UX Designer. It's a role that sits between both art and design, so it's perfect for my skill set. I'm so excited to take that next career step and see where it takes me!

Highlights of your time at Abertay?

I took part in the Eucroma exchange to Copenhagen, spoke at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and spent a year working for Microsoft in London.

Also, being on a program with a broad range of modules helped me explore the different areas of digital art I was interested in and ultimately led me to my current career path (UX design), so it was definitely the right choice!
