EEE hosts PGR poster conference 2022
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) has hosted its postgraduate (PGR) poster conference, an annual event showcasing the high level and breadth of research projects undertaken by EEE students.
It is the second year the event has taken place in the new home of Engineering and Materials, and it once again featured exhibits by second-year PhD students and those on two-year MSc programmes.
The conference hosted more than 60 exhibitors and numerous visitors. Members of the Industrial Advisory Group and EEE academics were again poster judges, and all reported increasing quality of students’ work, year after year.
They also advised students to always think about industrial applications of their research, and how to convey their work to various audiences.
Winners of this year’s conference, congratulated by Head of Department Professor Will Heath, were:
-Tarek Abdul Fattah (overall winner and winner of the Materials, Devices and Systems Division), for the poster on ‘Interaction of hydrogen atoms with boron-dioxygen complex: light-induced degradation (LID) suppression mechanism’.
-Halil Sahin (winner of the Control, Robotics and Communication Division), for his work on ‘Disease/stress detection on plants using hyper/multispectral imaging and machine learning’.
-Omer Elmogamer (winner of the Power and Energy Division), for the poster titled ‘Optimising future overhead line networks for flexible and resilient operation’.
-James Lenton (winner of the two-year MSc), for the work on ‘Optimising and comparing the performance of three central inverter topologies for high power PV grid connection’.
