    ​Computing undergraduates from the University of Northampton have been recognised for their work with awards from a prestigious society.
    Ten students received awards during the Northampton British Computing Society branch annual general meeting, which was held at Avenue Campus on Tuesday 30 September.
    Gary Hill, Head of Computing and Immersive Technologies at the University, said: "I'm proud that our students are receiving awards for their achievements from the British Computer Society and HMGCC.
    "To have such an award win on their CVs will help to give them a competitive edge when they embark on their chosen careers."
    The award winners were:
    Best final year student dissertation – Jan Tucholka
    Most promising first year student – Ryan Sinfeld
    Best final year business computing student – Matt Jacobs
    Most promising first year business computing student – Yoanna Slavova.
    HMGCC (Her Majesty's Government Communications Centre) awards were also presented during the evening to the following:
    Best final year student – Matthew Houston De Cesare
    Best group project – Ali Obaid Hassan Al-Mahmood, Jonathan Dimmock, Ryan Edwards, Daniel Constantin Lupan and Deryn David Suttling.
    Computer Science at the University has just received two glowing endorsements in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016 league tables.
    The subject was ranked in the top 10 for Teaching Quality and in the top 20 for Student Experience in the tables, which were published on September 20.

Social Analysis of Publications

The Computing staff's network of co-authors, at the University of Northampton, based on the University's  research repository NECTAR - http://nectar.northampton.ac.uk/view/divisions/SSTCT.html on 12th November 2016. The data goes back to 2010.




The data was analysed using the software VOSviewer - http://www.vosviewer.com/ free software for visualising networks. Differences in colours represents, the clusters of publications with those authors picked out by the software. The relative size of the circles is the relative number of publications listed; so for the two biggest circles/hubs it relates to 55 and 34 publications in this time period. Some relatively new authors, to the University but not to research, explains some of the 'islands' and the number of publications within it - it only reflects publications whilst at the University of Northampton.

To dig a little deeper, going to  look at the two biggest 'hubs' through their NECTAR records, so potentially going …

Computer lecturer’s research helps improve the next generation of technology

Taken from: http://www.northampton.ac.uk/news/computer-lecturers-research-helps-improve-the-next-generation-of-technology/ A computing lecturer at the University of Northampton, who is researching into how the efficiency of our everyday devices, such as mobile phones, can be improved, has been awarded the best paper at two recent conferences. Dr Michael Opoku Agyeman has written several journal papers focusing on how the next generation of technology can meet the ever increasing demands from consumers. He was invited to present his work at the 19th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design in Cyprus and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 14th International Conference in Paris. Part of his research concentrates on whether several processing elements can be incorporated on a single chip, known as System-On-Chip, to improve the efficiency and speed of the computing systems that we use every day, from mobile phones to video-game consoles and even medical equipment…
