On 5th December 2016, The School of Computing, Mathematics & Digital Technology hosted ‘Fun Tech Jobs’. The event was co-sponsored by IEEE Women in Engineering UK & Ireland, and IEEE Woman in Computational Intelligence, and consisted of a series of short talks on engineering and computer science, designed to inspire, educate and engage.
The programme of talks was as follows:
•Helen Duncan – MWE Media – 10 Myths About Engineering
•Ruth Lennon – Letterkenny Institute of Technology – Have a Go at Hardware
•Princy Johnson – Liverpool John Moores University – Success: When do we know we have done it?
•Rabia Khan – Manchester Metropolitan University – The UX Revolution
•Noushin Kariman – University of Manchester – Recent Advances in Electromagnetic Sensor Development: Power Station, Aerospace & NDT Applications
•Keeley Crockett – Manchester Metropolitan University – Smart Border Control using Artificial Intelligence
•Amy Khalfay and Naomi Adel – Manchester Metropolitan University – Manchester Metropolitan University – A Journey Through Our PhD
Following the talks, attendees were invited to stay for a networking session, allowing time for discussion and the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers. The event was a fascinating showcase of the varied work undertaken by our all-female panel of speakers, and allowed students to explore the wide range of opportunities available to graduates in engineering and computer science.
