Hackathon Project

Module description

This module will start with an intense short course delivered with input from industry leaders. You will then undertake an independent research project known as a ‘hackathon’. The project will allow you to display the skills you have learned during the taught part of the programme. These skills include: working in a team, project planning, programming, report writing and presenting. Each student will be supported throughout the project by a FinTech academic, and the project will be marked by the lead academic. The best performing projects will then have the opportunity to present their ideas to industry leaders.

*New module for academic year 2020/21. Full content details will be provided later in the academic year.
