Computing and Engineering Exhibition

University Centre Peterborough (UCP) hosted its annual Undergraduate Exhibition for Research and Design in Computing and Engineering (UERDCE). UCP students had the opportunity to demonstrate their major project work to businesses from around Peterborough which allowed them to receive professional feedback.

The exhibition was co-hosted by UCP Deputy Director James Larner and Alex Shaw – a representative of Compare the Market. Employers that attended the exhibition had the chance to identify local talent in order to meet their business and development needs. The Institution of Engineering and Technology was also in attendance, available to discuss membership opportunities and will be awarding a prize for the best project.

This event has manifested itself out of the presentations that the computer and engineering students complete in their final year. Both HNC and Degree students presented their final year projects however where the HNC was based around design, implementation and evaluation the degree projects were more research based.

Our new foundation degree in Computing and Information Systems was showcased along with Higher Apprenticeships opportunities. In addition to this the employers were offered the chance to find out more about Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.

“This year’s exhibition of graduate project work was more ambitious than ever. Computing and Engineering graduates had adapted their projects in order to meet the demands of local businesses.

The range of topics was diverse. Engineering projects included a wireless system for fuel-monitoring and 3D printing of a kayak. Computing included improving workplace organisation with an on-line portal and analysing ballroom dance movements from a mobile phone.

The feedback given by professionals invited from across the region was very valuable for the graduates and an inspiration to the students coming through next year.”
