Student Survey Results

We in the Computer Lab are constantly trying to improve the service we provide to our students. In both surveys we collected information and views about students' confidence, perception of gender related issues, and general culture in the Computer Laboratory. The insights from both surveys will result in action points for improvements in the department. The surveys was sent to all students in the Department at the start of Lent Term 2017 and Lent Term 2015.

The three lucky winners of the £25.00 vouchers are Oliver Black, Part IA, Henry Mercer, Part IB, and Hongyan Xia, PhD.
