Novosco IT camp returns to Ulster University

The camp is held at the university’s Jordanstown campus, and is free for students aged 16–17 across Northern Ireland

IT company Novosco is running its camp for 16–17-year-old students at Ulster University in Northern Ireland this week.

The five-day camp is free to attend enrolled in schools and colleges across Northern Ireland, and provides first-hand, practical experience in the management and development of IT infrastructure and systems.

First launched in 2016, this year’s camp expects to see 50 participating students, and will run a mix of theory and practical experience, covering networks, programming, building circuits, sensors, machine learning, and more.

It’s an understatement to say that Northern Ireland’s IT sector is fast growing and provides a vast number of opportunities for talented people.

The camp will also include a day at Novosco’s offices, which will include sessions with the company’s engineers and interactive talks on skills such as interviewing and CV writing.

Participating students will also receive a Raspberry Pi to keep.

Patrick McAliskey, managing director at Novosco, said: “It’s an understatement to say that Northern Ireland’s IT sector is fast growing and provides a vast number of opportunities for talented people. Novosco Camp helps us communicate that to potential future talent as well as to help them develop their experience and skills so that they can potentially go on to have a fantastic career in IT.”
