New engineering talent showcased at University event

Some of the country's brightest engineers will showcase their postgraduate findings as part of the annual University of Aberdeen Engineering Research Symposium.

The event covers environmental, industrial hydraulics, materials, chemical, power systems, communication, optics, applied dynamics, solid and granular mechanics research. Among the projects are an exploration of seaweed farms as biofuel and efficient, functionally, and enhanced subsea pipelines.

“The Engineering Postgraduate Research Symposium is a chance to inform students and staff within the School about the exciting, ongoing research  being undertaken within and across different engineering disciplines,” explains organiser Abayomi Obisesan.

“It’s also an opportunity to foster and develop links between key academic, industry, and other stakeholders with interest in the advancement of science and engineering knowledge and capability.

“There is a strong emphasis on the exchange of ideas at the University of Aberdeen and the promotion of cross and multi-disciplinary research, so it is important that students from different backgrounds get an opportunity to see what other researchers are working on, and how it could be of benefit to their own research.”

Full details of the event, which takes place on February 26 can be found on the Engineering Postgraduate Research Symposium website.  Venue is at University of Aberdeen, Fraser Noble Building.

Students and industry representatives are welcome to attend the event which is sponsored by MMI, Shell and IEEE.
