Prizes have been awarded to the students who produced the top presentations and posters for the inaugural NSIRC annual conference that took place in June.
The standard of material produced by NSIRC’s students was all of a high standard, but two presentations and two posters particularly stood out. The four exceptional students had their achievements recognised at a buffet lunch and presentation ceremony in August.
Receiving the prize for best presentation was David Williams, with Geoff Lunn the runner-up. Mohammad Taghipourfard won first prize for his poster; second prize went to Dorothy Winful.
David and Mohammad each received an award plaque, and all four received a certificate signed by NSIRC Director of Technology Tat-Hean Gan and SIRF Council Chairman Robert John.
Dorothy was delighted to have her efforts rewarded with the prize, and reflected on an excellent conference. She said: ‘The key benefit of the NSIRC conference was the opportunity to further develop my communication skills and network with engineers, academics and others.
‘I’m continuously learning how to summarise my research and tailor it accordingly depending on the audience.’
More than 100 people attended the NSIRC annual conference on 23 June. A full programme of the day’s events can be downloaded here.
