two10degrees presents "two10degrees Academic Prize" at University of Essex Graduation for 12th year running
Today, Charlotte Prodger of two10degrees, attended the Computer Science Graduation Ceremony at the University of Essex to present the two10degrees Academic Prize. This year’s winner was Julia Petria, who achieved the highest mark for her final year BSc Computer Science project.
The team at two10degrees has been working closely with the University of Essex for a number of years. From commercial project collaborations and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) to offering student Summer Placements and Work Experience.
"We’re immensely proud to be associated with the University of Essex, and to be able to support their very talented Computer Science students. This our 12th year of sponsoring the Prize, long may it continue."

Last week, the two10degrees team were lucky enough to be joined by Thurston Community College student, Fraser Gipson, for a work experience placement.
During his time at the Ipswich-based office, Fraser worked on various projects under the guidance of Lucy Finlayson, our Business Services Manager. Fraser worked on several projects over the course of the week including competitor research, devising a test and evaluation plan and developing a prototype app.
“During my time with two10degrees, I have been given the opportunity to have a go at a variety of different IT projects which I would not have had the chance to do in school.
Overall, I found the workplace very different from school; I was treated like an adult and felt like a member of the team even though I was only here for a week.
The office is a very welcoming and friendly environment and I was provided with help and support whenever I needed it. This experience has allowed me to develop lots of computing skills and learn a lot about what life could be like for me after I finish my education.
I would like to thank two10degrees for allowing me to work here and for the informative and enjoyable experience.”
Fraser Gipson, Work Experience Student
“It has been an absolute pleasure having Fraser over the past week. We were all impressed with how much he was able to achieve in such a short space of time and amazed by the quality of his work - he demonstrated some real talent and potential”
