Mechanical Engineering Symposium


Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering symposium 2014 , 27 th May, 2014

After successful completion of 2013 symposium where researchers shared the focus of their works with their peers, the third symposium of the school is scheduled for May this year.

It is a forum where researchers can share ideas with one another and with other academic staff in the school. It is also an opportunity  to showcase the research going on in the school to attract researchers to join the school.

The organising committee warmly invites you to attend the third Mechanical Engineering Symposium . The topic of the symposium covers all the research undertaken in the school which can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation.

The conference venue and program below will be updated:

Call for papers

The school of Mechanical Engineering will be hosting a symposium aimed at collating all of the current research that is being carried out within the School. The symposium will be an excellent way to highlight to everyone what our key research areas are and hopefully attract future researchers to continue the outstanding work that is currently taking place.
The conference is aimed at all Postgraduate researchers, Research Fellows and final year project students that are carrying out research within the school. All participants at the conference are asked to produce either a poster or oral presentation about their research. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentations.

This would be an excellent opportunity for anyone wishing to showcase their work locally before going to a much larger international conference not to mention a great way to get help from your peers who may be working in a similar field.
