NMI Annual Awards

It’s not every day you get to meet the CEO of ARM. It’s not every day you get to meet the CEOs of Imagination Technologies, the NMI, Picochip and Neul along with VPs and Directors from Dialog Semiconductor, Freescale, the Minister for Business and Enterprise and many, many more.

Undergraduate of the Year Awards

Undergraduate of the Year Awards The last two weeks couldn’t have been more different than the previous three if they’d tried. Out is the non-stop pressure and tedium of exam revision, in, an exciting new timetable of modules and a bit of spare time for societies to kick off properly again.
