Alumni have the code for success

Two former students from Lewisham Southwark College have shown their awesome computer programming skills having won a coding competition at Queen Marys University London.

The pair – Showrov Abul and Nowman Islam – both gained a Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT at the College before going on to study for a Software Engineering degree at Queen Marys, one of the UK’s leading universities.

Showrov and Nowman battled it out with their fellow students to win the competition, and are now set to represent the University at a Europe-wide competition in France. If they triumph on the European stage, the next stage will be to take part in the world tournament.

Head of IT and Computing Adu Antwi, said Showrov and Nowman during their time at the College, comments: “I’m delighted to see that these talented former students have won recognition for their fantastic coding abilities. It really does demonstrate that the IT foundations we provide students with at the College are the basis for building advanced skills which can take you anywhere.”
