Research Conversazione 2008

12 November 2008

The annual faculty wide event took place on Friday, 31st October 2008.

The annual Research Conversazione is the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies' major annual event to showcase the research undertaken by students over the past year. It is an ideal opportunity for industry representatives and alumni to network and make contact with the engineers of the future.

This year's event commenced with a welcome address that included drinks and cocktail food in the Seymour Centre followed by the poster displays and prize presentations in the individual Schools.

Around 55 Civil students presented their posters to interested industry representatives, academic staff and fellow students in the Civil Engineering Drawing Office.

With 19 interesting postgraduate posters and 12 undergraduate posters on display it was a tough task for our academics and industry guests to decide on the best research project, poster and presentation.
