Chelsea Nock, pictured here with BIC Deputy Chief Executive Jackie Millward was coming to the end of her MSc in Advanced Computer Science and welcomed the opportunity to practice her skills in a real time environment.

Chelsea’s placement at the BIC lasted for three months under the tutelage of their IT Manager Paul Longshaw. Chelsea immersed herself easily into the BIC team and soon understood the complicated requirements of an organisation which has been operating for over 20 years.

The new database is now up and running and BIC staff are finding it a wonderful resource. They are particularly pleased with the new reporting systems which will help them make light of complicated reporting requirements of their European Funded projects.

Chelsea finally completes her course at the end of September when she will be available for full time employment in web development, programming or software development.
