UWTSD FACE Final Year Exhibition

Welcome to our Final Year Project Exhibition page. Students from Computing, Technology, Construction, the Environment and Engineering present their undergraduate research at an annual exhibition at the end of their course.

This years event took place at TechHub Swansea where employers from technological industries were invited along to meet our students and discuss their findings and breakthroughs. It was a great chance to find out more about our courses and the skills and knowhow taught that address 21st Century Challenges.

Dr. Stephen Hole, Dean of the Faculty of  Architecture, Computing and Engineering (FACE) said "

The event is to showcase student project work to employers and students about to enter their final year of study.  Every year students get job interviews from employers both local and national. It demonstrates to industry the range of programs we deliver and the high quality of graduate leaving our programmes.  Students gain in confidence by talking to employers in an informal setting. Many projects are for employers and they demonstrate new or improved processes.  The Tata Steel project paid for itself in 6 months and is now making significant savings. It is a celebration of the hard work and dedication of our students and has proved popular with staff, students and employers."

Many employers take on UWTSD students before graduation, recognising that they have the right skills to hit the ground running. We aim to follow some of our graduates into the real world of employment and add their experiences to this page.

What Our Lecturers' Say

  • This year’s degree show featured exciting range of projects from artificial intelligence applications, advanced web sites, cybersecurity and networks to advanced engineering applications such as water purification. The show had a number of employers visiting including the  NHS Wales Informatics Service launched their exciting new development: The Wales Institute of Digital Information (WIDI) Academy.  This will train graduates of the University for three months and offer employment to the most successful graduates at the end of the summer. We are proud as a School to see such a successful group of students graduating and although we are sad to see them leave we all wish them well for the future


    Professor Ian WellsHead of Applied Computing

  • Although geared to final year students the event also included a display of the work of students on the first year of the architecture course. Hand drawings and computer generated images showed some of the projects that had been produced during the course of the year by Swansea's new School of Architecture. Students enthusiastically described  their proposals for a  marine research facility in Rhossili to visitors. Other first year projects on display included an exhibition of paintings by the artist Ceri Richards and a Pavilion in Singleton Park. All of the work was produced with a view to it's relevance to Swansea and the rest of Wales  - the drawings on display showed the students designs were both imaginative and responsive to the local context


    Paul HarriesHead of Architecture

  • It is very inspiring to see the project work of our students, working together with local industries to produce relevant projects, many on renewable energy and electric cars that can help with climate change


    Rachel AlexanderSchool of Engineering

  • It was fantastic to see our students showcase such innovative projects that included exciting solutions for industry and society’s current needs. A great balance of technical and ethical thinking was demonstrated in many projects showing just how much the work reflects the needs of today. Our society can only continue to improve with our Graduates contributing their fresh ideas in both private and public sector organisations.
