Tackling low numbers of females in IT.

Cassie Magee


Supervised by Matthew J W Morgan; Moderated by Padraig Corcoran

This project aims to explore the reasons why women do not study IT and build a system to tackle what I believe is one of the main causes. The goal of the project is to provide an online platform that can be used as a tool to test the user’s abilities against the core skill that is required for the role of a computer scientist. As a result, a technical minimum viable product was completed where the user can submit their answers in a form and receive their results. The project also includes an interactive facts and figures page outlining interesting information about this topic.
