Announcement
Project Demonstration Fair Video Introduction: Every year, final year computer science students dedicate two semesters to their final year project as part of their degree qualification. Since 2008, these students present the results of their project to the departmental public as well as to local IT industry. This event is organized in conjunction with IT Wales, Software Alliance Wales, and Technocamps. The aim of the fair is to provide students with a professional environment where they:
  • Present and defend their final year projects
  • See how their own project fits into the context of the entire year's results
  • Network professionally with IT companies.
During the fair, students are by their exhibition space for discussions with visitors from the entire Swansea Bay area community. This is a great opportunity to come and meet our latest group of graduates as well as to network with visitors from local academia and industry. Prizes are also awarded on the day.

Volunteers: We are looking for 20-25 volunteers to demonstrate their project to local school students. Volunteers are provided with lunch. Please notify Robert S Laramee if you would like to volunteer.

Project Prizes: There are a number of student prizes awarded including:

  • Best student project-voted by school students, 20 GBP
    Winner 2016: James Watson, Combining Music Streaming Services
  • Best student project-voted by IT industry,
    Winner 2016: Richard Lamar, Solving Rubik's Cube with Lego Mindstorms
    Renishaw.com sponsors this year's best student prize voted for by IT industry. Thank you Ben Daubney of Renishaw.com.
