The Engineering Researcher Symposium 2016 is an opportunity for Faculty of Engineering research staff to:
  • share, showcase and celebrate the latest world leading engineering research being undertaken here;
  • present their work to peers;
  • network;
  • be formally recognised for the quality of their research outputs and contributions to the research community.
The symposium is free to attend and open to all, not just Engineering research staff.  
Propose an oral presentation and/or poster and if nominated to represent your department you could then win £150 if your poster or presentation is judged the best of all departments (£50 second prize).  

Also, all at the University are invited to nominate an Engineering Researcher of the Year, who is a member of research staff who has not only produced outstanding research outputs but has also greatly benefited the research community.  The winner will also receive £150.

Deadlines for poster/presentation abstracts and Engineering Researcher of the Year nominations plus the symposium schedule are listed here.
Prof. John Eric Goff, Chair of the Physics Department at Lynchburg College, USA, will deliver a keynote speech on How Physics Makes Sport of Engineering.

Tea and coffee will be available all day and a large buffet lunch will be provided.

The event is sponsored by the Engineering Researcher Society, a body that represents the interests of Faculty of Engineering research staff.

The symposium is similar in format to the successful University of Sheffield Engineering Symposium, which showcased the work of PhD students.
