Software Development Trade Show 2007

Thursday, 24 May, 2007

The Software Development Trade Show (SDTS 2007), organized by UOWD's College of Information Technology, was recently held for the first time. The Trade show provided an opportunity for current undergraduate final year students majoring in Computer Science, Software Development or IT-related areas to collegially compete, communicate, and showcase their academic interests by presenting software projects undertaken at their respective institutions.

Students enthusiastically participated in active learning through project demonstrations, teamwork and sharing of their knowledge in the software development field. Being a nation-wide competition, where universities across the U.A.E. were invited to participate in the event, the event was a one of a kind success in student learning and interaction. The organizers also invited members from academic, students, Industry and the wider community to visit the Trade Show, which took place on Thursday, 17th May from 10am to 5pm at UOWD, Knowledge Village.
