Fever to PolyU Mechanical Engineering! In a hot afternoon on 30 May 2018, 22 research students displayed their posters and delivered their insights to us. Academic supervisors were there to give advice, classmates and friends came to learn together.

With an objective to provide the Research Postgraduate and Research MSc students of the Department a good opportunity to share their research project results and knowledge with their peers and the PolyU community, the Department has organized the Research Poster Competition on campus.

This year, a total of 22 posters covering a wide range of topics were displayed. The posters reflected the participants’ research findings as well as their new and innovative ideas for successful approaches and the potential contribution to the advancement of Mechanical Engineering.

During the competition, participants delivered a brief presentation of their research projects to win a vote from attendees including faculty members of the Department, research and MSc students, as well as peers and visitors on campus. Nearly 300 votes were cast and 6 outstanding posters were selected. The Champion, Runner-up and Excellent Poster Awardees won cash prizes of HK$2,000, HK$1,000 and HK$500 respectively.

Congratulations to their wonderful presentations and excellent research work!
