Project Expo 2009

Students in the Department will be exhibiting their projects to visitors from across the University and from industry on Monday 11 May.

This year the Student-Staff Joint Committee and the Engineering Society will again be holding an exhibition of projects by students in the Department. The exhibits will include Part IIB projects, UROPs, entries into international engineering competitions and hobbyist projects from individual students. The details are as follows:

Date and time: Monday 11 May 2009, 1-3pm
Venue: Lecture room 4, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street.

All are welcome. Prizes for the best projects and lunch will be provided.

Everything is welcome - Part IIB projects, UROPs, or something you've made in your free time. However, please get the permission of your project supervisor first (if you have one).

If you might want to take part, please email Paul Shepley (ps424) with your name, your project's topic and engineering area, and your supervisor's name (if applicable).

What's this all about? Project Expo aims to…

  • Showcase outstanding student projects to all members of the Department
  • Foster interest in and aptitude for engineering projects that go beyond curricular requirements
  • Allow Part IIA students to learn about Part IIB projects from current 4th years
  • Give students experience of presenting their project work


Still not sure? Check out what happened last year, many of the posters and plenty of photos can be found on the Student-Staff Joint Committee website.
