Rowan Walker

Student Digital Engagement Officer

Academic Quality and Development

I completed my studies at Staffordshire University, specializing in Film Production and Interactive Technology. Throughout my academic journey, I had the opportunity to extensively explore cutting-edge technologies within the realm of filmmaking. Upon graduating, I had a keen desire to further enhance my skillset, which led me to secure a Graduate Internship through the Graduate Hub program. During this internship, I was assigned to the newly established TILE team. Within the TILE team, I was entrusted with a diverse range of projects that not only allowed me to refine my skills but also enabled me to actively engage in a field that greatly intrigued me. As a result of my experiences and contributions, I subsequently applied for a full-time position at Staffordshire University and was successfully appointed as TILE Hub's Student Digital Engagement Officer.
