COMPUTING undergraduate Michael Stevens is a ‘digital leader of the future’!
Michael won the ‘Little Chip’ award for upcoming professionals at the Big Chip Awards on Thursday – the cream of the North West’s growing digital industry.
The BSc Computer Science student was put forward by Keith Miller, head of Computing Mathematics and Digital Technology after some outstanding work on the course.
Michael created a multimedia artefact to showcase his studies at MMU.
“I was aware of the Big Chip awards through my employers Raw Design Studio, a creative agency in Salford where I also work as a web developer.
“They have entered the main Big Chip awards for the past few years, and I have learned that additional awards, achievements and extracurricular activities are necessary to "stand out from the crowd.”
Keith Miller, who attended the winners ceremony on July 5 at the Palace Hotel, Manchester said: “We’re all really pleased for Michael. It’s an excellent achievement.
Another nominee for the Little Chip award was MMU’s Chris Saggerson, a student on BSc Web Development course.
