About Me

Hi, I’m Eric. I recently finished my course in Bachelor of Information Technology at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia where I majored in Computer networks and security. You can read more about me and why I choose an IT degree at Monash here.

I am known for founding and delivering MonPlan which is the Monash University enterprise course planning tool, built for students by students and was awarded the Rising Star category of the 2019 itnews Benchmark Awards - this is a National Award which recognizes a young IT professional who displays exceptional promise and has already clocked up impressive achievements.

I'd like to bring my passion for programming to building software and mechanisms to keep user data safe and ensuring that end users have the best user experience when using software. If you are a recruiter, I am best contacted via email at recruiting@ericjiang.dev
