Computing Degree Show 2018

Digital pioneers from the University of Dundee will be showcasing their innovative and thought-provoking work at the Computing Degree Show 2018 today.

Software engineers, games developers, computer programmers and tech entrepreneurs are among the graduating students whose creative talents will be celebrated at the event, which takes place at the University’s Queen Mother Building.

More than 70 students about to complete the final year of their undergraduate courses will be on hand to demonstrate their work at the show on Friday 4 May. A wide range of visitors, including employers and industry professionals, will attend the show.

This year’s cohort have produced digital projects including computer games, software that supports people with disabilities, business-focused applications and artificial intelligence tools.

Professor Annalu Waller, Head of Computing at the University, said, “The Class of 2018 have achieved a great deal and they should be as proud of their achievements as we are of them. Their projects look at everything from healthcare to culture to business-focused applications and artificial intelligence tools.

“Our students will go on to do great things in various fields of computing and this is a great chance for them to showcase their work to potential employers looking to find the most talented young designers.”

Previous graduates who exhibited at the Computing Degree Show have gone on to make their mark nationally and internationally by working for major companies such as Cisco, Sky, JP Morgan, Accenture, RBS, Skyscanner, GFI Max, Thales, Stena and Google. Recent first-job destinations range from Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh to San Francisco, Texas and Korea.  A number work locally in games companies and others have launched their own companies.
