MSc Showcase 2011
On the 14th of September InfoLab21 will be hosting a showcase mini-conference of the research work being carried out across 3 MSc programmes at the School of Computing and Communications:
Throughout the morning, students from the MSc progrmmes will be giving a 10 minute presentation with 5 minutes of Q&A to a mixed academic and industry audience giving a great chance for regional companies to see and feedback on some of the excellent work being carried out at InfoLab21.
Our Masters students have spent several months researching their chosen topic for their dissertation with a wide range of topics covering security, networking, software design and system implementation. For this reason the event will be divided into a number of themed streams. This will create a mix of student presentations from multiple MSc programme within the stream.
The event presents an opportunity for businesses to engage directly with the graduating talent from the Masters programmes from the School of Computing and Communications. Some of the students will be going out into the workplace, others will be looking to stay in research. Companies attending will be provided with a great opportunity to give feedback at the presentations, hear about emerging research and, perhaps, network with the technologists and scientists of the future.
