Graduation Gigapixel Images

Sheffield is the first UK University to take high definition images of the hall just before the start of the ceremony. These gigapixel images, which are normally reserved for high profile events such as the Royal Wedding, were taken by one of our own students, Edward Miller, working with CiCS. Edward, who graduated at one of the ceremonies also won the Sheffield University Business Planning Competition earlier this year, and is setting up his own business Re-Axive. Building on our use of social media, the pictures will be taggable through Facebook. Read more:
