On the evening of 27th May, DVLA@TechHub played host to the University of Wales: Trinity Saint David School of Applied Computing Exhibition.
Over 100 delegates were in attendance including representatives of business, academia and TechHub startups to see the end of year work from the University�s Computing Degrees.
25 students, prepped and ready, presented their final year projects demonstrating an academic year�s worth of hard work and graft, solving some of computing�s most complex and innovative projects and problems.
Local tech businesses and members of the DVLA board of directors including Chief Executive Officer Oliver Morley and Chief Technology Officer Iain Patterson were there to see the talent on show.
It is hoped that the level of exposure for the students to senior business people will lead to local high tech graduate job opportunities, when local firms see the level of computing expertise on their doorstep.
It was a showcase of the skills and expertise these individuals have developed from studying the School of Applied Computing�s extensive portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
TechHub is actively facilitating and creating open opportunities for collaboration with SMEs and startups to increase digital and technological innovation; the perfect arena in which for the students to establish themselves as credible practitioners.
The exhibition was a huge success. Many in attendance noted the professionalism of the students in their presentation skills and innovativeness in their projects with interesting and exciting concepts.
