Part IV Projects: Engineering Science Event as iCalendar

22 September 2015 - 23 September 2015


The Part IV project is a time-consuming, albeit enriching and essential experience for final year students. They spend almost an entire academic year to focus on their topic of interest, which will be presented over this two day event. Come along and experience what the final year Engineering Science students have learned so far and wish to share with you–there will be presentations, posters, and more. This event gives them a taste of communicating with a wider audience and is open to all, so feel free to bring parents and friends!
