The winners of this year’s Postgraduate Research Poster Day for the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) have been unveiled.
The annual event gives full-time second year and part-time third and fourth year postgraduate research students (PGRs) the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider academic audience and gain feedback from peers and research professionals.
Commenting on the event, FSE Director for PGR Professor David Joss, said: “Faculty Poster Days serve as a social and interdisciplinary networking event where learning, feedback and information are freely exchanged in a friendly and supportive environment. It is the perfect opportunity for like-minded people to get together and learn more about the research currently being undertaken at the University.”
Five prizes were awarded at the event including prizes for each of the schools in the Faculty of Science and Engineering and an overall winner for the day.
Ali Aboulatta, School of Engineering, was the overall winner of the day and received a £200 Amazon voucher for his poster on ‘Finite Element Modelling of Retinal Detachment’.
The winners of the school categories (pictured from left to right) each received a £150 Amazon voucher:
