The Department of Informatics turns 30!
15 September 2018

The Department of Informatics celebrated its 30th birthday in style on 6 September 2018. The festivities were held at the Royal Elephant Hotel & Conference Centre and  were attended by the lecturers, assistant lecturers, advisory board members, alumni and previous Heads of Department.  Professors Ben Shneiderman and Jenny Preece also joined the department in the celebrations as Prof Ben received his honorary doctorate at the graduation ceremony held on the same day.


Excellent entertainment, delicious food and much conversation were at the order of the day and enjoyed by all. A very special thank you to everyone that made this occasion such a festive event and a wonderful evening of celebrating old memories, while making new ones.
