Karan Kikani

Graduate Diploma in Information Technology

India

 

Karan Kikani gained valuable web development experience during his time at OPAIC, which he now uses in his job with Envision Creative.

Karan is from Surat, Gujarat, India. He studied the Bachelor of Computer Application at Veer Narmad South Gujarat University before coming to OPAIC.

He says that after the finishing his degree he had one goal - to study in New Zealand - the best country in the world.

“I chose OPAIC because it is a big institute with several campuses and some of my friends gave good feedback regarding the school.”

He says one of the best parts about studying at OPAIC was the teachers. He received a lot of help from them, particularly during the mini-project he completed with travel company Travel Corner in his final study block.

One of his favourite areas of study was web development. He already had some web development experience and his study at OPAIC helped him expand on that knowledge. Now he’s working as a Web Developer at Envision Creative.

Karan says OPAIC’s IT courses prepare students for jobs on the skill shortage list such as software engineer and web developer, and New Zealand offers many opportunities to advance your career.

Some of the best things about New Zealand are the friendly people, the weather and the food, he says. He likes visiting the local beaches and gets to Mission Bay near the city at least once a week.

Karan’s also enjoyed venturing out of the city to the seaside town of Paihia, and Cape Reinga at the very top of the North Island.
