Wellington, New Zealand - October 12, 2016 - Intergen proud of continuous sponsorship of academic award for top students in first-year Information Systems course at Victoria University of Wellington.

The Intergen Young Achiever Awards acknowledges the success of the three best performing students in INFO101: Foundations of Information Systems at Victoria University of Wellington. This paper is the mandatory first-year course for undergraduate students across a wide variety of disciplines, including commerce, information technology and law – meaning up to 1300 students enrolled each year have a chance to show their abilities.

Top students are selected based on strong academic performance and active engagement with the programme.

At the INFO101 Intergen Young Achiever prize giving held at Victoria University this week, first place was awarded to Molly Scoular-Sutton. Second and third place prizes were awarded to Georgia Davies and Louis Justice, respectively.

Intergen’s Executive General Manager, Solutions & Services, Emma Barrett, says, “It is very exciting being in a position to support the Victoria University of Wellington and sponsor the Intergen Young Achiever Awards.”

“Recognising the success and performance of these students is very rewarding because it allows Intergen to play an important role in preparing the next generation of technologists, business people and thought leaders that will help Wellington – and New Zealand – move towards a more sustainable future,” Emma added.

As part of the Young Achiever initiative, Intergen also presents a guest lecture to the first year students each trimester, sharing IT trends and insights and giving students a glimpse into what life in a career of IT is like.
