Congratulations to all our students on their achievements over the last year or so!

In July, we held an online event to celebrate students who had achieved execeptional results in their undergraduate programme.

This has been a very difficult year for all; students and staff, and we have seen how hard everyone has been working. We believe our students have made their families and friends proud and the dedication has shone through this dark period.

We especially want to celebrate the following students who have won Outstanding Project prizes, sponsored very kindly by IBM UK.

All of the following students have been awarded departmental certificates from the Head of Department, Prof Steve Hailes.
