The School of Science, Engineering and Information Technology at Federation University presents an annual Information Technology Student Awards Presentation.
The Sparx Systems 2020 award was presented to Thommas Bannister.
The Sparx Systems award was established for a student that displays academic excellence in their degree. On recieving the award, Tom commented "Learning at Federation University was one of the best experiences of my life. All of the lecturers were very kind and cared immensely about ensuring that their students were able to achieve their maximum potential and some of the friendships I made there will last the rest of my life. Over the course of my undergraduate, I studied a wide array of subjects including Artificial Intelligence, Security, Programming/Software Engineering, Databases, Networks, etc and got to be the project manager for a full year project that involved designing a Smart Bin system for Federation University campuses. My favourite area of ICT is programming/software engineering as it gives me an huge amount of creativity and allows me to continually challenge myself to design better systems and solutions to problems."
Sparx Systems likes to encourage Federation University students to achieve world class results. Sparx Systems has a strong association with Federation University with many staff having once worked and studied at Federation University.
