Will hunting good experiences in USA!

Will Bromley has just checked in with the School of Computer Science. He’s a Level 2 student who is spending his second year on a student exchange programme at Montana State University in Boseman, Montana, USA. After completing his first year at Lincoln he packed his bags during Summer 2012 and headed off to start an amazing experience.  

Will says “Montana and Bozeman are truly amazing places… The people are some of the nicest and friendliest I have ever met and the environment is one of the best for education I have experienced. The air is clean and there is more space and open roads than seems possible. When you head up to campus and see the mountains surrounding you, it is a very impressive sight indeed. This place really is part of “the great outdoors” and there are limitless opportunities for camping, hiking, kayaking, and in the winter, skiing.”

Will returns to complete his third and final year next summer.

Military MSc Delivery Success

The first cohort of the prestigious MSc Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Management course developed by SoCS staff in partnership with the world renowned 54 Squadron QWI training team at RAF Waddington were on campus last week for two days intensive delivery from two members of the SoCS team. 

John Lewak and Kevin Jacques welcomed 8 military personnel to Brayford Campus and treated them to an intensive two days of lectures and seminars in Research Methods to help support them as they begin their MSc Project work.  Students commented that the sessions were both invaluable and surprisingly entertaining!

Open Day – Another Big Turnout

Over 150 people attended SoCS subject talks at the recent University of Lincoln Open Day.

Staff and students were on hand to answer questions posed by potential LSOCS students and their parents and friends.  Typical questions related to the recent successes with regard to BCS accreditation, the number of students on placement year and the types of Projects done by our final year students.  Guests commented extremely favourably on the enthusiasm and knowledge of our Student Ambassadors.

Welcome Back to the School of Computer Science

A very warm welcome back to all returning students of the School of Computer Science. On the Blackboard Site for your programme (under Useful Documents) you will find the welcome week timetable. Make sure you attend all the introductory talks as we have lots to tell you about your next year of study at Lincoln and what has changed since last year. Have some fun this week and then be prepared to study hard from next week onwards!
