    EP.37: Imago, A Student Software Company

    Episode 37 of the CS@Manchester podcast features an interview with students from Imago, a student software company sponsored by the Institute of Coding, which is part of their student enterprise project.

    This is designed to provide the opportunity for students to engage with industry practise whilst studying at a Higher Education Institution.

    We speak to some of our undergraduate students from the Department of Computer Science who have been part of the Student Software Company over the summer. These are Karam Agha, Phoebe Evason and Albert Viliick.

    We find out about the different projects they worked on, the clients they delivered to and the positive experiences they found being part of the company.

    Dr Gareth Henshall, the department's First Year Tutor and one of our academic leads for the programme also joins us for the discussion, to talk about the aims of the initiative in general and the benefits to both students, clients and potential employers.
