Manchester – City of Technology gets United response from SoCS Students

A party of students travelled to the new BBC Media City in Salford last week to discover latest trends in software development at the BBC. The students were the quickest to respond to an offer of free tickets that the BBC made available to the School of Computer Science.

Final year student Jake Brown said “The speakers were all very talented at giving a lecture and there was a good variation between the topics. The experience of getting to look around MediaCity was definitely worth it alone, working in a place like that looks fantastic.”

MComp student Mike Knights reported back “The BBC staff took excellent care of us and the talks were very interesting. They were many about database systems and a lot of the concepts such as Hash tables and Graphs tied in nicely with the third year software engineering module that university teaches. It was nice to see how these data types are used in the real world.”
