Servelec Controls, a leading systems integrator in the Oil & Gas and Power & Nuclear industries, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University’s School of Computing Science and Digital Media Best honours project in Software Engineering. The accolade has been awarded to undergraduate student, Stuart Whitehead, at a prestigious ceremony today.
Stuart’s award-winning project aimed to research and synthesise concepts, techniques and technologies relating the potential for the much lauded Internet of Things (IoT). The project included data modelling, data persistence, a data access API and a real-time, bidirectional event API which was used as the foundation for a comprehensive demonstration application.
In selecting the prize winner, judges noted the quality and potential commercialisation of Stuart’s research. The application of the project’s real-time dashboard capabilities is also something that strikes a chord with Servelec Controls as a leading provider of real-time data for critical decision making to the Oil & Gas industry.
Ronald Holden, Divisional Director of Servelec Controls’ Aberdeen office commented; “At Servelec Controls we are proud to continue our ongoing support of awards like this that help promote up and coming talent in our industry. By sponsoring awards such as the Robert Gordon University’s School of Computing Science and Digital Media Best honours project in Software Engineering we help recognise the promise shown by the next generation of engineers and potential leaders who will build on the strong legacy of successes in this region.
“I would like to congratulate Stuart on winning this award and hope that it further boosts his confidence in developing his career.”
