Summer Showcase - PhD Science as Art Competition

PhD Summer Showcase

Friday 14 July 2017 | 11:00-15:00 | Queen's Tower Rooms, South Kensington Campus

This special event is organised by the Graduate School to celebrate the research being carried out by the College’s PhD students.  It provides an opportunity for staff and students of the College to come and find out what research projects are being undertaken and to meet current PhD students.  The showcase comprises two separate competitions.  The first is a poster competition where students present their research to both academic and lay judges.  The second is the research as art competition where students create a piece of artwork to describe their research.
