City to host first ever Made@City event on 14th June
City University London will host the first ever Made@City event from 4pm to 6pm on 14th June at the Northampton Suite.
Organised by the Professional Liaison Unit (PLU) and the Enterprise Office, the event celebrates the work of final year undergraduate and postgraduate students in the School of Engineering & Mathematical Sciences and the School of Informatics, particularly those whose work demonstrates excellence in innovation, creativity and the best use of technology.
Each student will be exhibiting their project work individually. Attendees - including potential investors, staff and students from across City - will vote for their favourite project and prizes will be awarded for the best project leader including a trophy printed from the City Interaction Lab's 3D printer.
Alex Elkins, Professional Liaison Unit Manager, says attendees can look forward to a high calibre of talent at this year's inaugural Made@City:
"A substantial number of students graduate from City having made excellent products and services during their final year. Made@City provides a platform for us to share this creativity with staff, students and the wider community. The projects on show are at the forefront of design and technology and we hope that the event will help inspire others to produce as brilliantly in the future."
Ben-Mumby Croft, Enterprise Education Manager, says events such as CitySpark 2013 and Made@City greatly assist in equipping City graduates with valuable entrepreneurial skills:
"There is a tremendous amount of entrepreneurial talent at City and Made@City is designed to showcase and celebrate the very best designers, coders and cool-stuff creators at the University. Events like Made@City are an essential way of raising the profile of enterprise and entrepreneurship not just with staff and students within City but across the wider Tech City community as a whole."
