Interactive Computing and IT Showcase a ‘must see' at Aberdeen College
6-8 June 2012
Wed/Thurs 10 - 8pm, Fri 10-12noon
Aberdeen College, Gallowgate Centre
Students at Aberdeen College studying Computing & IT will be showing off their new-found knowledge by wowing visitors with interactive computing wizardry at the Aberdeen College Computing and IT Showcase to which visitors young and old are encouraged to attend.
This is the third year the students have held an exhibition of its kind. In previous years they have received excellent feedback from visitors who have enjoyed viewing and experiencing examples of work produced by students from introductory level through to Higher National Diploma level.
Computing & IT Team Manager Cameron Walker is delighted with the standard and diversity of this years show. He said, "The students work hard all year and this is the perfect opportunity to showcase their work.
"Computing and Information Technology is an exciting area to be in because technology changes all the time. It's still the biggest growth area for jobs in the UK with more vacancies than qualified people to fill them. Our students are taught using the latest technology to support and develop industry-led products. This year visitors will be able to see a range of work from the creation of Multimedia web pages, through to planning and building networks and an opportunity to try out some interactive games created by our Software Development students".
The students whose work features in the exhibition are from a variety of Computing and IT courses. Aberdeen College offers an excellent range of courses for those who wish to provide IT support; those who would prefer to develop software; or for those who enjoy the challenge of web design, games development and mobile apps development.
The exhibition is open to the public and school pupils, in particular, are being encouraged to attend. Anyone unable to take advantage of the opportunity to visit this unique exhibition can view course information and examples of student work at: www.404found.co.uk - a website created by and for computing students at Aberdeen College.
