4th Year Project Showcase at the National College of Ireland (@NCIRL)

Today at the College we hosted a Showcase for the School of Computing 4th year students. For them it was their last event in the College as undergraduates. There were over 100 projects on show, and there were also over 30 representatives from industry - many who were looking to recruit. It was a very busy two hours where we heard keynote speaker Patrick McLaughlin of Oracle congratulate the students. He also told them it was a great time for IT students to be graduating, and also that they should continue to learn. He also mentioned that it was a good idea to move around different companies to get more experience!

We had some fantastic research projects, mobile apps, web sites, applications, and games on view. Our students can be very proud of their achievements - we are very proud of them at the College. While some have already secured employment, many are now setting out on the job hunting road - I wish them all the best of luck!
