Software engineers, games developers, computer programmers, tech entrepreneurs and other digital pioneers from the University of Dundee will this week showcase their innovative and thought-provoking work.
The Computing Degree Show 2016 celebrates the creative talent of over 40 students about to complete the final year of their undergraduate courses, with exhibits ranging from a trading card game to an app to help renal dialysis patients.
The Degree Show will run until the end of May, and will be attended by a wide range of visitors, including employers and industry professionals looking to find the most talented young designers, programmers and developers.
Graduating student, Babak Momen has developed a virtual reality programme to help people who are colour blind. He said, “If this project is successful the software could potentially be used to educate and inform people about impaired colour vision.”
David Kenny has created an app to make gift buying even easier. “Giftr allows anybody to share a gift wish list with their friends and family. It is intended to stop duplicate gifts being bought and will hopefully avoid any unwanted presents.”
Gareth Lloyd has made a fitness app for people with mild cognitive impairments. He said, “There are many mobile applications that deliver health information, but most are not accessible for people with mild cognitive impairments. The aim of this project was to design and create an Android application which was easier to understand.”
Discipline Lead for Computing, Professor Manuel Trucco said “We are very proud of what the Class of 2016 have achieved. The students have put a lot of hard work into the show this year and I’m sure visitors will agree.”
The Computing Degree Show 2016 runs until May 31stat the Queen Mother Building and is open weekdays 9am-5pm.
There will be a launch event on Friday May 6that 4pm.
