Digital whizz kids from Dundee University have showcased their work at this year’s Computing Degree Show.
Software engineers, games developers, computer programmers and tech entrepreneurs are among the graduating students whose creations were celebrated at the event in the university’s Queen Mother building.
More than 70 students who are finishing the final year of their undergraduate courses were on hand to demonstrate their work at the show on May 4.
The year’s cohorts have produced digital projects including computer games, software that supports people with disabilities, business-focused applications and artificial intelligence tools.
Employers and industry professionals were among those attending the show.
Professor Annalu Waller, head of computing, said: “The class of 2018 have achieved a great deal and they should be as proud of their achievements as we are of them.
“Our students will go on to do great things in various fields of computing and this is a great chance for them to showcase their work to potential employers looking to find the most talented young designers.”
Among those displaying work was Dagmara Kukawka. The Polish student developed technology that helps dentists treat people with special needs.
“I spoke to people with special needs so it became very personal for me,” she said. “It was a passion project.
“This was the last project I had to do for this course so there were a lot of sleepless nights as I wanted to make it as good as I possibly could.”
The 21-year old is moving on to do a post-graduate degree in Amsterdam.
Another student, Jimi Westerholm, created an app for android mobile devices to help people recovering from a stroke.
He said: “There was a study by a previous student into something similar, but there was nothing practical available so I got interested in developing the software.
“I talked to physiotherapists who work in Dundee to find out what worked and what didn’t.
“It is good to show it off to people and explain what I did.
“I might keep working on this over the summer as I feel very involved in it now.”
Among the employers at the show who were scoping out potential talent was Onorach chief executive Stephen Leiper.
He said: “We have identified some gaps in the market so we are looking for talent.
“I have seen things here that are unlike anything I have seen before and I am trying to see how we could make use of that.”
Previous graduates who have exhibited at the show have gone on to make their mark nationally and internationally by working for companies such as Sky, JP Morgan, RBS, Skyscanner and Google.
