Programme Team Leader
Before joining Arden as Computing Programme Leader, Mina Katti worked in various roles in the further education sector and gained expertise in a range of subjects. She is currently earning her Doctorate in Business Administration from the University of Northampton and is researching digital strategy and innovation management. As a part of her FE work, she galvanised curriculum innovation to make courses more up-to-date and to instil employability and industry skills. She champions micro-credentials and professional certifications such as Cisco CCNA, CompTIA, MOS, MCE, and MTA alongside core curriculum modules. Her current interest in DevOps emerged from her studies in cybersecurity and networking, however, she is equally conversant in software development. Mina is also experienced in training students to provide IT and business consultancy, and to local businesses in areas such as business analysis, user requirements, legal, technical, SLA, and service provisioning.
