The 7th PolyU Mechanical Engineering Research Presentation Competition was successfully held at the Lecture Theatre in the Jockey Club Innovation Tower, PolyU, on 7 Jan 2022. It is an annual event for research students to display their research project results and share knowledge with the PolyU community.
The competition emphasized academic pitching skills, with an aim to train research students to explain academic ideas to peers and non-experts clearly. This year, we invited 13 academics from 3 main discipline areas (Control, Acoustics and Dynamics; Materials and Solid Mechanics; Thermofluids and Combustion) to form a panel of judges to select the best presenters. Besides, we welcomed other research students and PolyU staff members to join the event and vote for the People’s Choice award.
Nineteen research student participants each delivered a high-impact brief in a 3-minute presentation. With their professional and animated presentations, those academic and technical terms were no longer distant to the layman. Most of the participants demonstrated outstanding academic pitching skills. The panel of judges was impressed by the ever-improving performance of the participants this year. Their presentations appealed to a large audience to vote for them.
After the oral presentations, participants interacted with the audience in the research posters exhibition. Displayed posters not only highlighted their research project results, but it was also an occasion for participants to convey their ideas, communicate with viewers and professionals, and let their talents be known.
Congratulations on their fabulous presentations and excellent research work!
