Students attend Transforming Government Workshop
27 April 2010
The tGov workshop was organised by the Information Systems Evaluation and Integration Group (ISEing) at Brunel and attracted a wealth of experienced and prestigious speakers and participants from around the world, focusing on Enabling Citizen Participation, Social Inclusion & Democracy through Electronic Systems & Processes.
The experience of attending such an international event was invaluable for the students, as in addition to networking they gained insight into future technologies and trends. Their feedback about the event was very positive as they had the chance to apply and correlate with the theory and case studies that were covered in class.
Students on the module have also previously enjoyed two guest lectures; one from Logica on Business Continuity and one from Barclays Bank on Security. MBA and postgraduate students from other courses in WBS also attended.
