Sentient is a printed book and online exhibition created by our year 3 and 4 students for their Creative Technology module led by Dr. Tom Flint. We normally have a gallery exhibition, but this year the students have managed to find alternative ways to exhibit their work. They say “We have had the opportunity to work on a number of incredible projects that we’re pleased to share. Not only do we enjoy showcasing our work, but also sharing details about the creative process behind each project. We want you to fully experience our projects, so please sit down, relax and enjoy.”
Yesterday our students became our graduating class of 2019 as they crossed the stage at the Usher hall. Here are a few pictures taken by 3rd year student Mari-Nikol Panteva and Lecturer John Morrison to celebrate. We’re all very proud of what our graduates have achieved so far and wish them every success with whatever happens next. Keep in touch!

Rachele Cavina, one of our final year BSc Digital Media students has come home with first prize in the final year category at the BCS Ada Lovelace Colloquium. The event happens in April every year and brings together female students of Computing from across the country. She used the event to showcase her honours project, which uses Augmented Reality and animation to visualise DNA heritage.

Rachele discusses her work with other delegates
Rachele was joined at at the event by Mari-Nikol and Elena, two of our year 3 students who also presented their work.
Thank you to Rachele for allowing us to share her work.
We’re very proud of third year Digital Media student Wilf Magnussen who is currently on placement with the Edinburgh Napier University marketing team. Here’s the video he shot last week to capture the excitement of graduation.
Wilf says “I hadn’t shot an event before so it was an intense learning experience, I worked with Cecilia from marketing and we planned carefully before shooting and got the video ready to share in two days” “It was hard work, but good fun”.
Look out for more content from the DMID interns working with the marketing team soon.
Just a few snaps from the graduation yesterday. Congratulations to all our new graduates, you have been amazing to work with and we’re so proud of you. Go and do great things and then come back and tell us about them!
A warm welcome to our direct entrants from college who are pictured here taking part in the Prototyping for Virtual Reality workshop with DMID lecturer John Morrison. They’ve had the chance to spend two days with us, finding out what life at University is really like as part of the “Let’s Start” events . It was great to meet them all and after some interesting conversations we’re looking forward to September so we can get started on some exciting projects.
