ECS student is winner in BCS Comic Strip competition
ECS postgraduate student Prins Butt has won runner-up prize in this year’s British Computer Society Comic Strip Competition.
The competition was open to all students studying an IT/Computing course and Prins entered because he thought that it was a good way of introducing students to practical and creative use of IT.
Prins is in his first year of a PhD in Computer Science at ECS, having graduated in 2007 with an MEng degree in Digital Systems Engineering. The inspiration for his comic strip came while he was helping his cousin fix his computer. He told his cousin to ‘Reboot’ the computer and decided afterwards to play a pun on the word ‘boot’.
Prins said: ‘When I entered the BCS Comic Strip Competition the last thing I expected was a reply, let alone being informed that I was a runner-up! For me, I was satisfied with just having the opportunity to have taken part and being able to write this on my CV, so I was very pleased when I received an e-mail congratulating me on my success.’
