Predicting the density of dark energy

By Mike Hewitt

Recently the School of Law Criminal Justice and Computing funded me to take part in this year’s International Conference on Particle Physics and Cosmology hosted by the University of Warsaw and to present a paper about predicting the density of dark energy – a mysterious property of space which is making the expansion of the universe accelerate. This was a wonderful opportunity to meet researchers from around the world and hear first-hand about the latest developments in our understanding of the structure and evolution of the universe.

EKC Computing students visit CCCU

On Wednesday 14th October 2015, students studying on the HNC in Computing & Systems Development programme based at East Kent College Broadstairs enjoyed a day at the CCCU Canterbury Campus at the invitation of the academic Computing team.  The day began with a warm welcome and an introduction to Computing degrees at CCCU by Senior Lecturer, Mr Reza Mousoli, which provided the students with possible progression routes for their continued studies once they had completed their HNC programme.
