Integrated security manufacturer TDSi is pleased to announce the arrival of its latest student placement, Vlad Radoi. Vlad has joined the company’s Software Development Team for a twelve-month placement as part of his BSc (Hons) in Software Engineering studies at Bournemouth University.
Vlad is the latest in an ongoing line of TDSi placement students, as Managing Director John Davies elaborated, “As a business we have a long heritage of supporting apprenticeships and placement students across all parts of our business, so we are always delighted to support a new student. Software Development is a key role within the access control and integrated security industry and one which is at the heart of what TDSi does, so Vlad is exactly the type of passionate young trainee professional we look to attract and support, as they enter the world of business as well as the technology of security.”
Originally from Romania (although he has lived in the UK for over 10 years) and a fan of the McLaren Formula One racing team and Arsenal Football Club, Vlad is looking forward to working directly with the TDSi team, as he stated, “Being at Bournemouth University has been fun and weird at the same time, for the last year and a half my experience has largely been online via Zoom and Teams, due to pandemic restrictions. However, I am excited to be getting first-hand experience in a commercial setting with TDSi, there is much to learn, and it will kickstart my career as a software engineer.”
Having started with TDSi at the beginning of August, Vlad is already working closely with the Software Development Team, helping it to enhance its GARDiS Access Control software for example. “At the moment, I am working with the GARDiS API, and whilst it is complex, I enjoy studying the intricacies of it. This role gives me lots of experience working with new frameworks and language, as well as learning how software development works in the real world.”
Vlad is looking forward to the year ahead and added, “TDSi is an important player in the security and access control industry, and I look forward to learning a lot more about the company, its software and software development as a whole.”
