Semantico has announced the winners of its annual competition for second year University of Sussex software engineering students. With a winning project of a fully-functioning ant world simulation, the winners saw off stiff competition to win the prize of £200 towards a meal out in Brighton, and the opportunity to interview for a paid summer internship programme at Semantico.
The winning team comprised Joseph Kimberley, Vasyl Kodre, Hui Ling Lee, James Twisleton, Matthew Weller and John Wilkie.
Software engineering module leader at the University of Sussex, Kingsley Sage, said: ‘Their submission demonstrated a good commitment to working as a team, and, in particular, showed that they were able to apply good software engineering practice to deliver a quality end software product.’
The competition was created to support and nurture the top local software engineering talent; previous winners include current Semantico employees such as technical team lead James Baxter.
