Greenwood Technology Announces e-Scholars Winners

Greenwood Technology Announces e-Scholars Programme Winners

AUCKLAND, 7 March 2000 – Greenwood Technology today announced that three University of Auckland computer science students are the inaugural recipients of the company’s e-Scholars programme. The programme is designed to encourage academic excellence in the area of information technology and gives students in their last year of undergraduate study a grant worth $5,000 and the opportunity to work for Greenwood Technology at the completion of their university studies.

Simon Greenwood, Managing Director for Greenwood Technology, says the significant growth in e-commerce has led to strong demand by technology based businesses for high calibre computer science university graduates. “Greenwood Technology is all about delivering change through innovative technology based solutions to customers. Our people are key to delivering this change and the e-Scholars programme is designed to attract talented and committed graduates to assist in this process.

“We have people with long industry experience and vast knowledge. But we also want to challenge industry thinking. The e-Scholars programme gives us the opportunity to do this by recruiting highly skilled graduates who can effectively act as ‘change agents’ and improve our capability to deliver competitive advantage to our customers.”

This year’s e-Scholars recipients are Matthew Bates, Sarah Henderson and Kirsty Robb. This year Matthew will be undergoing an Honours year in Computer Science at the University of Auckland. Upon completion Matthew intends to work in programming or systems analysis. Sarah is similarly undergoing postgraduate study (Bcom Honours). Sarah would also like to work as a programmer or analyst, with the intention of moving into project management in the future. Kirsty will be completing a Bachelor of Commerce (Information Systems) and Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) this year. After graduation, Kirsty aims to move into programming or testing and, looking further ahead, systems analysis or project management.
