A Computer Games Development undergraduate has beaten over 250 fellow students to a national computing gong.
Open to first-year students in the University of Bedfordshire's School of Computer Science and Technology, Matthew Kaye (pictured) was awarded the British Computer Society (BCS) Prize for achieving the best grades out of an eligible 268 students.
Accrediting a number of Bedfordshire's Computer Science and Technology courses, BCS is the Chartered Institute for IT, looking after the interests of individuals worldwide in the computing profession.
"I was absolutely delighted when I was told the news, and quite surprised," said Matthew, who collected a £150 cheque and free BCS membership for his efforts.
"I have been at the University of Bedfordshire for less than a year so to win such an award already is amazing, and has given me a lot of confidence for the remaining two years of my Degree."
Rob Manton, Senior Lecturer in Computing and Information Systems at Bedfordshire, added: "Matthew has an excellent attitude – not just in completing his work, but embracing all of the extra-curricular opportunities that are available, as shown by the team's recent game jam success. They all did the University proud."
