A good turn out at the School of Computing Student Conference
The School of Computing’s annual showcase for student and researcher work was held on 16th March and welcomed over 60 presenters and 50 guests from local businesses and across the university. The University’s Employability and Enterprise departments were also represented and we were delighted to see former students at the event.
The theme of this year's conference was “Conversations in Computing”. Staff and researchers discussed their initiatives and collaborations in conversation hubs on a variety of topics including Big Data, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Intelligent Systems Research, Cyber-security and Forensics, Mobile Applications, and Computing and Education.
The final year project students demonstrated their software artefacts and presented their research findings in areas including distributed systems and security, mobile app development, social media and current business/IT issues.
Guests enjoyed seeing what the School is doing and discussing opportunities for joint projects and graduate positions. All alumni are welcome to future events, which are held in the 3rd week of March, to coincide with British Science Week.
