It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to GradEX 2019, our annual exhibition of project work undertaken by final year students at Staffordshire University. This event features work by students from across our Schools, and we are committed to ensuring that our students have the right opportunities to make the most of their time here.
Our new Catalyst Building, due to open in 2021, will provide world-class facilities and we strive to deliver the very best infrastructure for our current learners through innovative digital teaching, partnerships with industry and outstanding support. Our new Digital Institute London, opening in September 2019, exemplifies this commitment by putting our students in the heart of the European capital of technology
We are very proud to showcase our students and their work to prospective employers, the public, friends, family, and colleagues. GradEX offers our students a chance to explain their work to others and as such it plays an important and formative role in their development. GradEX would not be possible without the involvement of employers and every year the personal interactions that take place between our students and key industry figures result in job offers and career opportunities. GradEX 2019 is sponsored by a range of employers and professional organisations and is supported by many judges.
We are very grateful for their support as not only does it serve as a mark of recognition of the work of our students, but also adds significant value and esteem to the event. Thank you for taking the time to visit us. I am very proud of our students and GradEX provides an excellent opportunity to celebrate their achievements. I hope you enjoy this celebration and your day with us at Staffordshire University.
