Working in partnership with software engineering students and lecturers of Aberdeen University, Intelligent Plant are once again sponsoring an annual prize that helps to showcase local IT talent.
The Inform Prize is now entering into its fifth year, and invites third year students to create a digital solution to a real problem. Last year’s winners designed an automated marking system for schools and universities, to avoid having to mark programming assessments by hand.
Steve Aitken, Consultant Director at Intelligent Plant said “We are delighted to be sponsoring this prize for the fifth year in a row, as supporting local students is very important to us. Each year we look forward to the final group presentations, and the chance to discuss the students’ ideas in more detail, before deciding who goes on to win the prize of £800”.
Participating groups will be invited to present their ideas in front of a panel of judges on Wednesday 24th April, at Kings College Auditorium, and for the first time ever, the local business community is invited to attend. It is hoped that this new showcase, jointly hosted by Aberdeen University and Intelligent Plant, will become an annual event, linking students, lecturers and local employers to showcase talent and highlight employment opportunities within the area.
