Engineering Research Showcase 2019
The Engineering Research Showcase is an annual event run by the Faculty of Engineering.
It is designed as a fun and engaging event for the Postgraduate Research (PGR) Students to participate in. It gives them the opportunity to highlight their research to colleagues across the faculty and offers them a vital opportunity to practise their presentation skills for future events and conferences they may attend. There are also prizes on offer for the winner of each year group competition!
Those in their first year of PGR study compete in the PhD Pitch Perfect Competition. This is one minute, quick-fire presentation on their research. Competitors are able to have one slide to illustrate their work but no animation is permitted. This year, the Food, Water, Waste research group was represented in this category by Henry Forbes and Qingsu Liu.

Those in their second year of PGR study compete in the Poster Pitch Competition.
During this competition, judges view the candidates posters and ask dynamic questions about their work. This allows the candidates the opportunity to defend their research in a similar way to how they will be expected to defend their work during their viva voce.
This year, the Food, Water, Waste research group was represented in this category by Andrew Henshaw and Nidia Diaz Perez.
Those in their final year of PGR study compete in the 3 Minute Thesis (3MT). This is a compelling, spoken presentation on their research topic. Candidates have just 3 minutes to deliver their presentation and are able to use one slide to illustrate their work but no animation is permitted. This year, the Food, Water, Waste research group was represented in this category by Oliver Fisher and Andrea Garduno Jimenez.

All candidates from the Food, Water, Waste research group did a fantastic job and everyone in the group is very proud of them.
I just want to add my thanks to those who put a lot of time and effort into presenting and representing us. They are all winners in my eyes.
The day was wrapped up with a fabulous Gala dinner where the day's winners were announced and prizes given out.
Entertainment organised by the Students Union created a fun and relaxed atmosphere where attendees could let their hair down during a well-deserved social evening. This was also a great opportunity for the PGR students to further develop their networking contacts within the Faculty.
I felt very supported all the way through the Showcase process by all the FWW members in the group. I am grateful for all the opportunities FWW and the Faculty gives us to practice our presentation and networking skills.
