The awards are given to those whose challenges and achievements deserve recognition and whose thinking has set them apart from the crowd. KITC’s nomination is for the ‘Student project of the year award’ through former student consultant Simon McCarthy.
Simon’s project involved specifying equipment for Rochester Cathedral’s upgrade to their IT System; he also provided staff network support and ensured that the upgrade went smoothly – a role that earned him a personal testimonial from the Right Reverend Adrian Newman, Dean of Rochester Cathedral, thanking him for his attention and dedication to staff needs.
David Soud, Co-ordinator of KITC, said, ‘We are delighted that Simon McCarthy and KITC have been nominated for one of the most sought after awards accreditations in the industry. During his time with KITC, Simon was an outstanding consultant. He always made his clients the first priority, he was hard working, conscientious, an excellent technician and definitely an asset for the KITC.
‘This nomination is also an important acknowledgement of KITC’s role, a key aim of which is to prepare our students to work as IT consultants in industry. This gives them the edge in a very competitive market.’
Launched in October 2005 and based in the Computing Laboratory at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus, KITC provides high quality, low cost IT support, services and consultancy to SMEs and micro-enterprises in the Canterbury, East Kent and Medway area. The KITC is unique in that its consultants are undergraduate computing students, whose work is mentored and supervised by experienced co-ordinators.
The Computing Awards for Excellence 2006 will take place on 25 October at Battersea Park Events Arena, London.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
