The 1st ME Research Poster Competition

The 1st Research Poster Competition organized by the Department of Mechanical Engineering has successfully concluded on 27 May 2015.

With an objective to provide the Research Postgraduate and Research MSc students of the Department a good opportunity to share their research project results and knowledge with their peers and the PolyU community, the Department has organized its first Research Poster Competition on campus. 

A total of 17 posters covering a wide range of topics were displayed. All posters reflect the participants’ research findings as well as their new and innovative ideas for successful approaches and/or the potential contribution to the advancement of Mechanical Engineering.

During the competition, participants gave a brief presentation of their research projects to win a vote from attendees including faculty members of the Department and research and MSc students.  The posters that received the most votes would win the Champion and Runners-up for cash prizes of HK$2,000, HK$1,000 and HK$500 respectively.

Congratulations go to the following prize winners for their wonderful presentations and excellent research work:
