Earlier this month saw the annual Research Student Poster Day exhibition take place at the School of Computer Science and Informatics when postgraduate students designed and displayed posters that represented their current research project status.

The event offered an engaging platform in which students were able to showcase and discuss their research projects with fellow colleagues and tutors through design and creativity. The standard of work at this year’s event was excellent with each poster giving a fascinating insight into the varied and thought-provoking research projects currently being undertaking by the students; there was even a cash prize for the winner in each year group.

There were 35 students involved in the exhibition all offering unique and creative information about their individual research projects. Dave Marshall, Director of Postgraduate Research Studies said “There were many outstanding posters and breadth and quality of the research never ceases to amaze me.  The Poster day is one of the best days in the School calendar and a superb showcase for our PhD students’ research. The event had PhD students at all levels, some only a few months into their PhD studies, present their work and benefit from the experience of having to explain their work to staff members and other students. All good professional development and practice for their research.”
