COMP103P and COMP205P students at the award ceremony on Friday 27 October 2017.

Each year, undergraduate students at the Department of Computer Science undertake a series of real-world projects as part of their course. These projects enable students to develop their taught theory further based on their level of study; by working with clients across the university, with regional hospitals and research groups, as well as with major industry sectors.

In line with the values of the BCS, the real-world nature of the experience gives them a first-hand view of team, time, client and project management, as well as introducing them to the nuances of software development processes in practice.

This enhances the academic calibre of our students; especially in readying them for internships and work experience, entrepreneurship growth and further research.

The next departmental deadline for upcoming UG industry project requests is 10 December 2017. Please contact Dr Yun Fu or Dr Dean Mohamedally for more information.
