TVEMS Information Technology Robotics 2019 Team
First Global Team Saint Kitts and Nevis 2019
Not ONCE, or TWICE but THREE times St. Kitts and Nevis Robotics team is back again at First Global Robotics Challenge 2019 as a collective of fresh, innovative, technological leaders of our upcoming generation.
Our team is made up of 5 brilliant minds in love with the field of technology, driven toward all new and upcoming developments in our federation. We believe that the future is now and we are the ones who shape it into what it could be. This is the era that minds like ours will capitalize on opportunities like First Global and make monumental changes all around the world. Our main goal is to further involve our nation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
The overall make-up of our robot’s hardware components is a result of the cooperation of all members of the team but specific components of its development can be split into two primary groups.The Engineering Faction consists of our robot’s Driver Jeremy Warner, its Controller Jordan Prentice and fellow Lead Engineer Ainka Saunders. Representing the Programming faction, our Team Captain and Spokesperson Abion Stevens works alongside fellow Programmer Vivisha Wattley to code and test the functions of the robot. While these individuals serve as the federation’s international team at the 2019 First Global Challenge, it would be an injustice not to mention the greatly appreciated assistance of every comrade incorporated into the local team who’s aid and time within the development phase also contributed to a considerable amount of effort used to create a well-built competitive robot.
Competing at the First Global Challenge will give us the grand experience of being there first hand, to participate and observe all the amazing minds of robotics around the world. Also to expand our very own minds and help shape the future of robotics. “The Future Is At Hand”
This course has shed so much light on the sheer importance of Management Information Systems in the working world. They are literally the backbone of every organisation and can significantly streamline all business operations. I loved this course! It helped to become familiar with the different types of Management Information Systems and their individual benefits to businesses on a global scale.
This course taught me the fundamentals of MIS. It also revealed how Management information systems are essential to the growth and development of organizations.
On completion of this course I have gotten new found appreciation and understand for just how vital management information systems are to operation of a company or organization. So i am grateful that this course offers all the relevant information on current MIS and their uses a long with the standards need to make and manage them.
this course really open up my mind about how much computer or management information system it self helps organization in huge way by making them be able to collect and properly organize data in away in which the can be analyzed and be put to use to make decision in organizations.
Management Information System has open my understanding to how organizations perform their work. Decision making, Control, analysis and coordination are clearly said within this course. I've also learnt type of MIS, different information system and how they can be used within the real world. I can now perform the role of an system analyst thanks to the help from this course. If you want to know how organisations operate on a daily basis, I would recommend this course for you
