Uni.lu Masters Students to Present Innovation at PMI

The Project Management Institute (PMI) Luxembourg has announced details of its yearly event in collaboration with the University of Luxembourg which will be held on Tuesday 30 January 2018 at 1730 at the University of Luxembourg, Campus Limpertsberg (162a Rue de la Faïencerie, L-1511 Luxembourg, Room Bâtiment des Sciences BSC-E02-001).

The topic of the evening is "How can Technology help Society, in a way that truly adds value?"

Every year, students of Uni.lu’s Master in Information and Computer Sciences demonstrate it is possible to deliver an innovation in only 12 weeks. The students will share their results and learning experience on this challenge, especially on how to manage short deadline projects with limited resources, and still deliver an end-user product.
