SEPnet’s 7th Annual Students’ Expo recently took place at the Royal Academy of Engineering. Over 150 students, academics and employers came together to celebrate the achievements of 84 students who successfully carried out industry and research summer placements on a diverse range of topics from production engineering of a prototype electric motorcycle to mapping of UK innovation clusters.
Former students gave inspiring talks about the benefits of their experiences and their current roles. Professor Martin Earwicker spoke about his varied and successful career as vice chancellor of London South Bank University, Director of the Science Museum and first chief executive of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.
Students gave 1-minute presentations and displayed posters about their projects. Prizes donated by the IOP were awarded for the 6 best posters.
We will soon put out a call for next year’s summer placements. If you are interested in offering a summer placement to a physics student, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Six student posters were selected as winners:
