Over the course of the academic year, students would qualify for EDGE accreditation by engaging in an assessed reflective account, as well as a minimum attendance requirement at the seminar series. The proposed EDGE activity would aim to open up some of these talks beyond the module level. Selected companies would be invited to present lunchtime technology seminars, with an invitation to all students and staff within the School. It is anticipated topics address would include professional practice in agile development, automated testing, database security, dynamics of teamwork in computing, tools for build management and deployment.
