We have joined with our Corporate Partners to bring you an exciting lecture series of technical presentations called 'Applications of Computing in Industry'.

The technical presentations are designed to complement your studies by showing how theory is applied in practice and by describing interesting technical challenges in industry and how our partner organisations are addressing them. Learning more about how computing is applied in industry will also support you with your career choices and the insights you gain will give you a competitive edge in applications/interviews.

When? Usually Tuesday from 12pm till 2pm for the first six weeks of the Autumn and Spring term. To launch the series there will be additional talks on Tuesday and Wednesday of week 1, in the Spring and Autumn terms. Occasionally there may be ad hoc presentations at other times. For more detailed information on times, please view the below table.

Where? Usually Lecture Theatre 308, Huxley Building - but see programme below for precise dates and details.

Who? Applications of Computing in Industry is open to all DoC students and students from relevant departments. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please note that some presentations may assume prior knowledge of a technology/area and as such may be more suitable for students on certain courses or at certain stages in their study - where this is the case it will be noted in the presentation details provided below.

For details of previous years talks, see: 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014, 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017.
