House of Lords showcase for School of Computer Science

Students and staff from the University of Lincoln were invited to a prestigious event at the House of Lords this week to showcase work being done at the University in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

SoCS postgraduate student Derek Foster was given the honour of making a welcome speech to the invited audience of Lords, members of Parliamentary Select Committees, industrialists and businesspeople from as far afield as Australia. The event was a huge success with a number of new contacts made and potential partnerships discussed. Head of School Dr David Cobham said “it was a fantastic opportunity to network with the key decision makers. This was the University being seen on the world stage, showing how it is contributing to the advancement of technology and its many applications.” 

A special video  was commissioned for the event showcasing the STEM activity of the University. SoCS work was featured both in an interview with Group Captain Al Gillespie discussing the collaborative programmes being delivered at RAF Waddington, and in Dr John Murray’s work in the building and flying of quad-copters for image capture and processing.

The event was hosted by Lord Victor Adebewole, the Chancellor of the University of Lincoln.
