It’s been a busy day in the SoAC School Office as our third years call in to drop off their Exhibition Boards for marking.
But there’s far more to the Exhibition Boards than simply getting a good grade. Producing an A1-size poster summarising their degree project also gives students the opportunity to develop presentation and marketing skills – vital in today’s workplace.
After the boards have been marked, the students will be displaying their work to the public at the School’s 2016 Degree Show at TechHub on May 26th. But as well as showcasing their boards, the poster event also gives them the chance to meet local employers who are looking for graduates with their skills.
Businesses and entrepreneurs come to the annual event to browse the ability, innovation and initiative on show. But they don’t just look. Impressed employers at previous years’ Degree Shows have offered graduate placements and work experience .. . so don’t miss it!
