Tier 2 Consulting, the region’s leading web applications consultancy, has announced a unique partnership with the University of Hertfordshire as it signs up as an official module sponsor of the School of Computer Science.

As the industry sponsor of the Computer Science Development Exercise, Tier 2 Consulting will provide a cash prize to the team of students who earn the highest mark in the course module which gives the students hands on experience of working as a team on a complete systems development project.

Mark Jenkin, Associate Dean for International & Enterprise in the School of Computer Science, at the University of Hertfordshire, comments: “The Computer Science Development Exercise is a popular module with students as it’s one of the first opportunities they have to experience a real life development project. They will work as a team to produce a fully functioning software package from start to finish, dealing with real life issues and problems that occur.

“We are delighted to be teaming up with Tier 2 Consulting this year as with its team’s experience in web development, their sponsorship and support adds real gravitas to the module and the students are excited about showcasing what they can achieve to a real-life commercial business.”

Andy Kennedy, Managing Director at Tier 2 Consulting, adds: “We have been based in the region for ten years and really wanted to get involved in a project with up and coming university students to share our knowledge and gain some real insight into the fantastic talent we have in the computer science industry in this region.  We felt that sponsorship of this module is a great way to support the University and its students, and we are excited to see what they come up with when delivering their final projects. We are keen to see a balance of technical skills combined with the strong verbal and written communication that is vital in this industry.”
