Bournemouth University

BSc (Hons) Computing   2010-2014

Four-year bachelors degree including a twelve month industrial placement (See Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, above). The course is accredited by the British Computer Society and covers a wide range of computing practices, including network protocols and design (utilising the Cisco 3-Layer architecture), relational databases (utilising Oracle SQL), data mining, cloud architecture and programming, modelling with UML and project management.

The final-year project (dissertation) involved designing and building a system for vehicle manufacturing plants to wirelessly track the physical location of vehicles on the assembly line. This involved researching existing products and building a novel solution. The result utilised RFID to track vehicles between work stations. Users can monitor vehicle progress using the native Windows client, built with C#, or with the web app, built with ASP.net. The system used a MySQL database to store location data. See the YouTube video to the left for an overview of the solution.
