Research Day

Each year we run our Research Day event, providing the opportunity for top quality collaborative research to be presented to staff, students and visitors.

During this fantastic one day event, a selection of PhD students, Research Associates and Post-Doctoral Researchers will present summaries of their key findings. Providing an exciting opportunity for research activities to be shared across all research groups and to inform the wider research community of what our students are producing.


Research Day 2019

The department for Engineering Research Day this year is to be held on the 11th June 2019.

Presentations from the Department of Engineering are to include challenges from Future Energy Systems, Next Generation Materials and Microsystems and Sustainable Infrastructure. A presentation competition and a poster competition will be held - with prizes of £100 and £75 for the winners of each competition respectively.

Throughout the day presentations will be delivered by various academic staff from the department – this promises to give a real insight into the cutting edge of their research.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all attendees.

We look forward to the event with great anticipation.
