Department of Materials hosted its annual Postgraduate Research Day on Monday 27 March.
During PG Day, postgraduate research students can present their research to an audience of faculty and fellow students.
First-year PhD students chair the session, second-year PhD students create posters to display their work, and third-year PhD students give talks about their research. At the end of the day, prizes are awarded for the best presentations and research posters, with awardees receiving a certificate for their efforts.
GradSoc also organised an image competition this year, asking students to share exciting images of their work. The winner of the competition was announced during PG day.
