The Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB) was delighted to showcase their end of year project exhibition in Computing on Thursday May 18th at Liberty IT's facility in Blanchardstown.
Showcasing the best of innovation in computing, the exhibition featured student's work from final year projects on the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computing. Visitors to the exhibition witnessed a wide range of engaging, creative projects featuring mobile application development, java development, text processing, computer vision and games development and computational intelligence.

 

 

From the courses' inauguration in 1999, ITB's computing programme has attracted an impressive cohort of creative, dynamic and talented students who are passionate about technology: Students who have a serious competence in computing and have developed the skills to allow them to contribute to today's interconnected world.
The Head of School of Informatics and Engineering at ITB, Dr Anthony Keane said of the exhibition, 'the final year projects reflect the technology of the time and as you read through the project descriptions or view them online you can't help but be amazed at the diversity of applications of current computing technology, especially in the smart devices category. I am delighted that Liberty IT have generously supported the end of year showcase 'Recursion' by hosting us at their facility and providing generous prizes for the best projects. Liberty IT already sponsor a scholarship programme at ITB and we look forward to building further links with our near neighbour'.
Felim O'Donnell Director, Liberty IT explained that having established a base in Blanchardstown just three years ago, it was important for Liberty IT to build a strong relationship with our local Higher Education Institute. Addressing the final year students he went on to say 'I would encourage all of you, no matter what road you end up travelling- whether you work for yourself, for a small company or even for a multi-national to always seek out opportunities to learn. Computing as a discipline will continue to evolve making it challenging and fun to keep up with the latest technological advances'.

 

 

Recursion is the brainchild of Stephen Sheridan, Course Coordinator for the final year of the BSc (Hons) in Computing at ITB.
According to Stephen 'the final year project is an integral part of ITB's undergraduate computing programme and gives students the opportunity to demonstrate all of the computing knowledge and skills they have acquired in their four years of study at ITB. In particular, the project gives students the chance to work on a long-term project from its initial conception right through to a final demonstration of a working system. Having the experience of a full software development life cycle is a critical skill for our computing graduates and our collaboration with Liberty IT will give students the chance to get valuable feedback and insight from industry professionals as well as experiencing a real-world software development working environment. It is always a pleasure to coordinate and supervise year four projects and the year four supervision team and myself would like to wish all our computing graduates the best of luck in their future careers and as it states in the 2017 Project Brochure "Stay in touch!"

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
