Photo exhibition on war veterans and cyber security products on display at end of year show
The innovative and creative projects will displayed to the public, recruiters and Yorkshire businesses at the event on 22 May at Leeds Beckett’s Headingley Campus.
The exhibition includes a product designed to improve our security against a cyber-attack, a product to help Digital Forensic Investigators speed up online evidence gathering and a photography exhibition on body positivity and war veterans.
Dean of the School, Professor Colin Pattinson, said: “Each year, our end-of-year show displays the best talent from undergraduate courses.
“It is one of the highlights of the year for the School and gives students the opportunity to show off their creativity and hard work.
“This year, we will see projects by 60 students across 11 courses.
“The exhibition is open to everyone, so we would encourage and welcome members of the public and students across the university, as well as creative professionals and businesses on the lookout for top graduate talent, to come along and see our students’ fantastic work.”
2017 Computing, Creative Technology and Engineering End of Year Showcase
Following the exhibition, industry guests are invited to attend to see students’ work and network with other industry contacts, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The showcase will be open 1-3pm and 5-7pm and is being held in Caedmon Hall. As part of the showcase, Photographic Journalism students will be hosting two exhibitions on 21 May at Headingley Campus and 25 May at Northern Monk brewery in Leeds.
Student James Readhead, who will be graduating from BSc Computer Forensics and Security this summer, has developed a product, which could help solve cybercrime cases more quickly in future.
The product, which examines Microsoft Windows Operating System Restore points, automates the identification and extraction of historic data and will be on display at the showcase.
The information extracted can provide evidence to help secure prosecutions, speed up evidence gathering from Windows computers and help solve criminal cases more quickly in the future.

Laura Reid, who is also in her final year of BSc Computer Forensics and Security, will also have her project displayed. For her project, Laura developed a product that generates randomised vulnerable web applications to help with penetration testing.
It hopes to highlight the need for more cyber security professionals to combat vulnerable web applications through creating more accessible learning material for users.
Senior Lecturer in Digital Journalism, Anthony Walker, said: “As well as the showcase at Headingley campus, some of our students will also have their work on display at the Northern Monk brewery.
“The showcase includes exhibitions on body positivity, plastic tides and war veterans. There is a wide range of work on display, highlighting the diverse and impressive projects our students have worked on throughout the year.”
