Welcome to our Enhancement Week Lectures

Enhancement week is an event unique to the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln. During this week we add variety to the student experience by creating a programme of inspirational guest lectures, interactive workshops, and exciting learning opportunities. We typically only offer these sessions internally to our own students, but taking advatage of the virtual world we now find ourselves all living in, we have decided to open these up to a wider audience.

If you have any interest in computing, video games, or any of the specific topics below, please feel free to watch back the sessions from our 2020 enhancement week. Also, feel free to watch any session to find out more about what we do in the school of Computer Science, our research, and what makes Lincoln a great place to learn.

All the enhancement week lectures can be found on our YouTube channel, and you can find specific links to individual sessions below.
