26 October 2006

It has been a been a busy week for our final year students.

Their final year thesis projects are nearly finished, marking the culmination of 4 (or 5) years study and preparation to join the work force as professional civil engineers.

Some of the varied thesis research topics included

  • Buckling of stainless steel wine tanks.
  • Passive ventilation systems for apartment buildings
  • Properties of new age aluminium alloys
  • Efficiency of wind turbines
  • Analysis of traffic models in Sydney

As part of enhancing communication skills, students are required to present their work in several ways.

  • Traditional hard bound printed thesis
  • 15 minute oral presentation
  • Poster presentation

The best 10 posters have been chosen for display at this week's Research Conversazatione.
