A team of computer science students from Hatfield’s University of Hertfordshire came second in a competition set up by a leading international IT provider.

The team of first year undergraduates - Normunds Rieksts, Anuhya Vuppala, Myfau Shakeeb, Ty Brooks, Dilek Selin Ucan and George Coleman - took on a project management challenge organised by the FDM Group, a key graduate employer.

George Coleman said: “We had a great day all in all. We came an excruciatingly close second place in the contest, but it was good fun in the end.”

Mariana Lilley, associate dean of the School of Computer Science, said: “It was great to see out first year students displaying technical team working skills at such a high level.”
