University hosts Prestigious Projects event
Computer Science and Mathematics students from the University of Wolverhampton recently had the chance to showcase their hard work at a final year exhibition.
The event, which took place at the University’s MI building, City Campus, saw approximately 200 Computer Science and related course students presenting the artefacts they had developed over the past academic year.
Students presented their work to fellow colleagues, University academics and also business representatives, as part of a concluding module.
The majority of the presentations were held in the newly refurbished glass fronted labs, with projects ranging from sudoku solvers to virtual reality gaming.
The aim of the event was to enable students to show their individual ability to peers, academics and industrialists.
Steve Garner, Head of Business Engagement at the University of Wolverhampton said: “The project is one of the single distinguishing factors for all our graduates as it is a culmination of their learning experience delivered through the artefact they have developed.
“It is an opportunity to show their individuality and provide them with valuable experience going on after graduation.
“It is good for all to see how their work sits alongside their peers and for the industrialists an opportunity to see first hand who has the required skills for the future within their business.”
The University is also delighted to welcome several new courses into its ever-growing Mathematics and Computer Science portfolio for 2016, as well as new facilities being introduced in the aim of creating better employability and mirroring industry requirements.
