UG4 Student Conference 2015
To mark the end of the four year MEng programme in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and for many, the end of university life, a two-day Student Conference is held each year at the end of June.
It provides an opportunity for this year’s graduates to present the results of their research, carried out in the final year over a period of four months, to an audience of academic staff, industry, postgraduate researchers, and fellow undergraduates, in the form of a poster and an oral presentation. The Conference offers an excellent way to showcase the skills of our final year students as well as the diversity of research undertaken within the departmental Sections of Environmental and Water Resource Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Geotechnics, Structures and Transport.
The final year posters, which can be viewed by Section in the drop down menu's below, reflect the content of the research paper, as presented, at the Conference. Some poster and titles have been withheld due to commercial sensitivities. The event closed with an Awards ceremony at which the best student oral presentations, by Section, were recognised. This year’s winners (2015) were:
