Student Profile: Andy Persaud

I have a BEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering and have experience working as part of the existing Fused Media Lab.

Until recently I do not believe I would have been able to classify, specifically, what my interest area in technology was. Seeing the course outline for an IOCT Masters has changed that. If asked now what I'm interested in, I'd say a little bit of everything -and that’s exactly what the IOCT is.

The most exciting thing about the IOCT Masters is that I feel that I can literally study whatever I want. I've never had that kind of freedom before. What I have found most challenging is having to choose between modules, when I wanted to sit in on most if them! How have I got around it? Managing time 'very creatively' and 'borrowing' people's notes so I can learn from them.

At the moment the project I am working on is Transposing Holographic Volumetric Displays. I intended to turn today’s volumetric displays into something truly worthy of science fiction movies. Once my project is complete, I plan to play with HAPTEC feedback and reversing angles of display to make the project FAR smaller and efficient. I would like to do a PhD.
