School Conference a Resounding Success

The School of Engineering and Digital Arts held its inaugural School research conference on Friday 15th January 2010, in the Pilkington Building at the University’s Medway Campus.

More than 80 participants attended the event. The programme comprised four oral presentation sessions and each started with a short introductory talk by the respective Research Group Head. There were also three poster sessions. Professor Paul Tasker, an Industrial Fellow from Cambridge University and the latest Royal Academy of Engineering funded Visiting Professor in the School, gave a keynote presentation at the beginning of the conference.

Academics, research associates, postgraduates and support staff all greatly enjoyed the day and said that they gained a better understanding of the wide variety of research being undertaken in the School and felt that it would encourage greater collaboration. Several members of other schools also attended the event.
