Showcase 2009 - Student work in the School of Creative Technologies

Showcase 2009 - the annual presentation of student project work in the School of Creative Technologies took place on Wednesday 13 May 2009.

As usual the graduating students from:
Multimedia DL131/DL142/DL143, Digital Media Technology DL132 and Psychology DL141
presented their projects. This year they were joined by graduating students from DL155 MSc in Cyberpsychology. There was a very interesting mix of posters, practical projects and software prototypes and applications for visitors to see.

Showcase was opened by Gavin A.Johnson (Managing Director) IPAG (Ireland) Ltd. Showcase 2009 provided an opportunity for graduates to meet employers and people from industry and academia.

Also on display were competition posters. The CHI2009 Student Design Competition poster Alex Gartland and Paulina Piasek was presented at the recent CHI2009 conference in Boston Ma. The Imagine Cup Healthtext poster by Dara Parkes, Oluwaseuin Adams, Keelan Carberry and Claire Coleman was awarded an Innovator Accelerator prize in the Imagine Cup finals at TCD on 30 April.

The undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of the School provide the foundation for the work of the CCTA.
