The New Noticeboard

We are testing out a new way of handling the noticeboard: managing it as a blog. If you use an RSS or Atom newsreader, you can now use it to read the noticeboard.

MUST3000/3024: Dissertation and Final Project 2012-13

The powerpoint slides from the presentation before the Easter break on preparing for these modules are now available here in pdf. Please look at this, especially if you were not able to attend the class on 22 March.

There are now Blackboard sites for these modules available. Please use the Blackboard blog facility (under 'course tools') to post a 200-word proposal for your dissertation of final project, by 29 June 2012.

Arduino User Group

Ian Sexton, Principle Lecturer in Computer Technology, is considering launching an Arduino User Group at DMU. "The idea being that we arrange a regular slot in a lab that has good facilities, test equipment, a variety of shields, etc & have fun! There are people in other departments interested in this & I'm sure it would be good if we can get it going.Some of my students are exceptional programmers & it would be great for them to link up with students who approach things from another direction! Let me know if you're interested in something like this & I'll see what can be done." If interested, you can email Dr Sexton at sexton@dmu.ac.uk.
