UEL computer science showcase highlights best new work by students
Dark web and drone projects among show highlights
New research into possible links between variations in genes and lymphatic cancer, the discovery of £26 million worth of drugs for sale on the dark web, flying drones controlled by contactless handsets and apps that tell you when your bubble bath is full. These were just some of the impressive projects that were on display at the 2016 computer science showcase at the University of East London (UEL).
Around 120 computer science, information technology and software engineering students from the School of Architecture, Computing, and Engineering (ACE) spent the day at UEL’s Knowledge Dock showing off their final-year projects and receiving feedback from computer science and IT staff from the University.
The students, who have been working on their projects since the start of the 2015 academic year, were assessed by project examiners, with grades counting towards their final degree.
Visitors also had the chance to learn more about data mining to improve breast cancer prognosis, an app for those wanting to learn Bollywood songs and several projects around cyber security and hacking.
Some of the projects will be selected for the ACE showcase in June, alongside the most striking projects from ACE’s engineering and product design students.
