On the 20th March 2017 the College hosted Mr. Paul Maritz (Former VP of Microsoft and CEO of VMWare). He got a tour of School of Computing and IT (SCIT) facilities (i.e. lecture rooms, computer labs etc.) and visited ongoing projects e.g. WIMEA-ICT project, Software Systems Center (SSC), Artificial Intelligence (AI) Lab, Microsoft Incubation Lab etc.
He also had the opportunity to meet with College Management (Principal, Deans, HODs & Heads of units) who gave a general presentation about the College (past, present, and future). The research and teaching carried out at the College was also discussed as well as future possible collaborations.
Mr. Maritz ended his visit by viewing undergraduate student’s projects, meeting with other key researchers at College and exchanging current ICT trends with several key tech personnel from the industry e.g. Outbox, Yo! (U) Ltd. etc.
