Cardiff-based Circle IT has been appointed to carry out a major IT upgrade for the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

The upgrade will create a modern, energy efficient network infrastructure to improve the overall use of technology for students, staff and visitors at each of the university’s campuses.

The project is also set to include the new IT infrastructure for the university’s new £300m SA1 Swansea Waterfront development as well as working on its wider network blueprint.

James Cale, UWTSD’s executive head of information technology & systems, said: “This project will not only have a positive impact on our students’ experience but also on our staff and visitors.

“Information Technology plays a significant role in the education sector and by investing in this key project, the university has shown the high importance placed on student experience at UWTSD.”

Roger Harry, chief executive of Circle IT, added: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this project to provide a new IT infrastructure for the SA1 Swansea Waterfront Development as well as working with the university on their wider network blueprint and replacing their existing SAN.

“Our team has strong expertise in the education sector and we have seen first-hand the impact technology can have on teaching & learning and student experience.”
