DPD Design Sprint at FutureFest 2017

As part of an ongoing partnership between delivery and logistics company DPD and Staffordshire University, the Schools of Computing & Digital Technologies and Creative Arts & Engineering ran a highly successful Design Sprint competition for students as part of the recent FutureFest event in November.

Students spent a full day busily working in groups to create and design solutions for various challenge topics provided by DPD, and presented these to a prestigious panel of judges which included our own VC, Professor Liz Barnes, the CEO of DPD, DwainMcDonald, and School Deans Professor Eunice Ma and Professor David Hawkins.

Twelve teams presented their ideas with the three best teams awarded not only prizes, but also the opportunity to work further with DPD on future projects. All teams impressed the judges with their innovative suggestions and pitching skills, and picking the winners was a challenge in itself!

Huge congratulations to everyone who took part, and to our winning students!
