Regain the crown for Reading at the CISCO University Challenge 2017

Following the success of last year’s edition, CISCO are delighted to announce that they are hosting another event this year, between 26th – 27th October.

The challenge is open to multiple degree types and is targeted at first-year students, students looking for a year in industry and final year students with graduation expected in either 2018 or 2019. This includes BA, BSc, MSc & PhD students. The winning university will receive prizes and trophies.

They are looking at students from the top 15 universities throughout the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, and Europe. From each university they want a team of five students to work on solutions related to emerging technologies within our increasingly digitized world. Each task will give the teams an opportunity to develop a fresh and innovative approach to creating solutions in software.

This event will encourage and enable the participants to work in a collaborative environment, that will give the teams real world experience in one of the world’s leading technology companies.

The University of Reading team were champions in 2014 – do you have what it takes to regain the crown?
