IT students tech trip to Old Trafford

In May 2017, computing students visited Manchester United Football Club’s Old Trafford Stadium to explore how the latest technology is helping them to stay ahead of the beautiful game.

They discovered how the football club is using computerised technology and data to support the business; gaining first-hand knowledge of how IT systems help it to make informed decisions about all ticket sales, turnstiles, as well as keep track on the marketing and player development.

Students learn about video-gaming through the ages

Each year, our computing students visit GameCity – The National Videogame Arcade, based in Nottingham. In past visits, students have taken part in masterclass sessions, including creative and fun ways to interact with computers using everyday objects to replace keyboards and mice.

There are also opportunities to take a look at gaming through the ages.
