QLAB Advanced Technology Project

QLAB Advanced Technology Project

Students come to Qlab each week and receive project supervision over the academic year and for some over the summer as well. The students pick a technology track to focus on: 

  • Cyber security
  • Data analysis
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Software Engineering
  • Robotics
  • Entrepreneurship 

They first complete a leading freely available online taught course. For example the AI track students would study the Fast.ai course. This includes learning an unfamiliar programming language, advanced concepts such as deep learning and overcoming a number of technical challenges such as getting such programs to run and/or using cloud services.

For some tracks, such as entrepreneurship the focus is not on an online course but on independent research, in particular finding and interviewing a successful software based entrepreneur and analysing the stages and state of the market for that business.

Once the course or research project is complete the students will undertake an independent project equivalent to half a final year project in size and structured similarly.
