The number of finalists in this year's awards is a reflection of the good work done by the School of Computing and all the people involved in our research, teaching and outward projects, including The Cyber Academy, and the SOCLAB, which is created and operated in partnership with SATISNET.

Good luck to every single one of our finalists.
