Old Collegian Logan Beard

Logan Beard (OC 2015) says having free rein to create a video game in a Year 12 Digital Technology class, was a turning point which gave him, and others in the class that year, an understanding of the unlimited possibilities of a career in technology. “Our teacher, Phil Adams, had such a passion for technology and exposed us to lots of things we could do with it. Back in 2013 and 2014 he was also ahead of his time, teaching us languages like Python, which I have gone on to use both at university, and in my career.” After graduating with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Canterbury, Logan started working for Christchurch company, Seequent, which provides powerful geoscience analysis, modelling and collaborative technologies for the mining, civil, and energy industries. “I completed an internship at Seequent during my final year at university and was taken on full-time. It’s great to be creating software which helps clients make better decisions about their data, gives them more value, and helps them to be more environmentally friendly as well.” Logan says he is ‘very happy and learning heaps’ in his current role. “Technology is a great sector to be in and I’d definitely recommend it to other St Andrew’s College students.”
