Computing Your Future: Workshops


The Workshops will be of three kinds, as follows.

The Day in the Life of ... ones describe typical activities and scenarios for someone with a given job title.

The Degrees for You ones are to help you sort out the jungle of thousands of computing degree courses that are available.

The Hot Topics ones describe briefly, with some illustration, technical developments which seem to be especially significant.

The aim was that every school student visitor will participate in three workshops being one of each kind. That's not quite worked but is true for most. Unfortunately we cannot give you a free choice for which workshop you attend because of space and equipment limitations. Employer reps not involved in presentation, and teachers, are free - at their discretion - to join any of the Workshops as they wish.

School students will get your personal schedule from your Guide when you arrive.

The Workshops which we expect to be running include the following. (These may change but on the day there will be five or six of each.)
