The computing and IT industry is growing strongly in Yorkshire, and so the School of Computing has launched a new computing professionals network to provide a meeting place, and broaden the channels of knowledge transfer between the University of Leeds and industry and public sector organisations.
To keep up to date with what's happening and find out about upcoming events, please join the Yorkshire Computing Network group on LinkedIn.
With your help, we will build this network across a wide range of sectors in which computer science and information technology are prominent, including Entertainment, Finance, Government, Health, Marketing, Defence, Telecommunications, Transport, Retail, Utilities, Consultancy/Software Development, Data Analytics, and embedded systems.
We currently collaborate with organisations from a wide range of sectors. Examples include a large number of utilities companies (Artificial Intelligence research), the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (Applied Computing in Biology, Medicine and Health), the transport scheduling company Tracsis (Algorithms and Complexity), Google, Rolls Royce, and Jaguar Land Rover (Distributed Systems and Services), and Microsoft, and Proctor and Gamble (Computational Science and Engineering).
The Yorkshire Computing Network is part of the School of Computing's Industry Engagement Plan, and was created in conjunction with the University's Digital Technologies Sector Hub.
If youy have suggestions for meeting themes, discussion topics or questions about the network and upcoming events, pleae contact Dr Roy Ruddle.
