PhD Poster Event

PhD Poster Event

We were delighted with the turn-out for our PhD/MSc by Research Poster event on 18 January. 25 students prepared and displayed posters and a team of judges evaluated their posters. Assist. Prof. Deepak Ajwani shared his experiences in a fascinating talk on "How to do (great) research?" and Eoin Delaney talked about his experience as a PhD student titled "Doing a PhD and Having Fun Too". Assoc. Prof. Georgiana Ifrim presented the best poster prize to Pasika Ranaweera.

Many thanks to Rosemary Deevy in the Postgraduate Programme Office and Assist. Prof. Madhusanka Liyanage Director of Graduate Research, for organising the event and also to Student Reps Ranul Thantilage and Zhongyi Lu. We plan to hold another poster event in June.


We also took the opportunity to record some of the students talking about their PhD studies. (opens in a new window)Watch it here (2 mins 40 seconds)
