Computer Science in Action

09/06/2014

On Thursday 5 June 2014, Swansea University led projects, Software Alliance Wales, Technocamps and Swansea University's Computer Science Department, opened their doors to business at the Computer Science in Action: Student Project Demonstration Fair.

The event, held at TechHub Swansea, offered 'soon-to-be' graduates the opportunity to showcase their computer science skills to prospective employers in Wales.

Over the course of the afternoon, Swansea University computer science students, benefited from an inspirational careers talk from Aimee Bateman of careercake.com, whilst also having the opportunity to network and interact with prospective employers during the exhibition later in the evening.

Attendees at the event - ranging from students, academics and industry representatives – each had the opportunity to vote for the ‘Best Student Project’. Resulting in, three ‘soon-to-be’ graduates, being recognised for their hard work, throughout their academic studies.

Kieron Jewell for Who's Watching Me? The Little Brother Concept

Winner of best student project as voted by the IT industry:

Ryan Wong for Visual Assessment Boundaries
