FYPExpo-3 Stephanie Dinsmore, First Derivatives with Aislinn Moorhouse and her ‘Easy to Learn’ e-learning project.

It might have been an 8am start and it was fairly cold outside, but it didn’t stop employers arriving early to make sure they got to meet DCU’s Computing and Engineering final year students. The Helix was definitely buzzing with visiting employers from dozens of different companies.

This year President of DCU, Prof. Brian Mac Craith thanked SAP for yet again continued sponsorship of the event and to the many companies who sponsored numerous student prizes. It was interesting to see this year, SAP’s key note speaker was Aisling Mulholland a previous Computer Applications graduate who spoke of her fond memories in DCU and how she has implemented her learnings into the working world of SAP.
