Research Conversazione 2014

Research Conversazione is held annually in October and allows the Schools in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies to showcase high calibre research and projects undertaken by undergraduate and postgraduate students with a focus on innovative, applied research that responds to national and international needs, as well as engaging with various new approaches and applications.

“Research Conversazione allows industry and the community to see our engineering and IT students' significant contributions to engineering and scientific knowledge," said Professor Archie Johnston, "I always look forward to learning more about students' exciting research topics and talking with young men and women who will be future leaders in academia, government and industry."

Heading into its 25th year, Research Conversazione has become the premier research event within our faculty and school.
