Poster Presentation

The Poster Presentation 2017 is the School of Civil Engineering' major annual event to showcase the research undertaken by students over the past year. It is an ideal opportunity for our academics and students to network and share research experiences with each other. This year's event was held in the Civil Engineering Drawing Office with around 70 contributions, from traditional lines of research to emerging fields in the broad areas of Civil Engineering. A word cloud is generated as follows.

Word cloud where the size of a word is proportional to the number of times the word appears in the title of the students’ research presentation.

Around 100 students presented their posters to interested academic staff and fellow students. We had 27 postgraduate posters and 43 undergraduate posters on display. The Poster Presentation 2017 was a great success thanks to high-standard poster contributions. We were very impressed with the quality of presentations and the wide diversity of research topics within our school.

I sincerely thank all people who has amazingly helped me run the event, especially Fernando for constantly giving me tips from Zurich; Calvin Chiew for upgrading the Poster Presentation site; Daniel for co-organising the PG poster session; Guien for initiating the interesting "people's choice" session and helping with the venue setting; Ross Barker for placing the posters and bringing the drinks; Susanne, Daniela, Lorraine and Jingping for helping with the catering and nametags; and John Barber for setting up the venue. I also appreciate the enthusiasm of Louis Taborda contributing with the entries in project management
