The future is bright for UWL’s trailblazing technology and engineering students: Life on campus

Students at the School of Computing and Technology have been using their technology and engineering skills creatively, and exhibited their work at the University’s Summer Showcase in May.

Applied Sound Engineering student Sebastian Stanciu demonstrated his laser harp, and visitors were able to conduct a virtual orchestra.

Computer Science student, Obaro I. Johnson, won an award for designing a London is my Campus app for students. Organised by London Higher, a body that represents universities and higher education colleges in London, the app design competition aims to enhance the student experience in the capital.

Information Technology Management for Business student, Jasleen Maan, came to UWL through Clearing. Last week she spoke to BBC Radio London about her time at UWL and said, ‘The University of West London is like another home to me. I can’t emphasis enough how much I enjoy it here and how much my teachers go the extra mile to help us.’

Applied Sound Engineering student Paul Dengel enjoys his time here and has made the most of the University’s location. He said, ‘Everything you want is just an easy tube ride away. It has been a very welcoming experience.’

In March the School hosted an international conference on ‘Civil Engineering Applications of Ground Penetration Radar’ (GPR), focussing on the exchange of scientific and technical knowledge of GPR techniques in civil engineering. GPR is used to build and survey bridges, tunnels and buildings, as well as underground utilities. Head of the School Professor Amir Alani said, ‘Technology is developing beyond my imagination, and students are making the most of this at UWL by working together to develop cutting-edge opportunities’.
