AbacusBio sponsors Polytechnic BIT Awards

As an international leader in agribusiness consulting – well known for our agri-tech services – it is important for AbacusBio to actively contribute to the IT sector. This year, we are very proud to be the main sponsor of the Otago Polytechnic IT awards, as part of our continued commitment to students at the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic.

AbacusBio consultant Mark Teviotdale, was a guest speaker at the 2013 graduating class of the Bachelor of Information Technology. Mark (who himself was a BIT graduate) also presented two new AbacusBio-sponsored awards: Award for Best Student in Programming in the BIT (awarded to Tim Miller), and Award for Best Graduating Student in the BIT (awarded to Logan Mabbett). Congratulations Logan and Tim!
