The Exhibition showcases second and third-year and group projects and Final Thesis demonstrations for Electrical, Computer, Telecommunications and Mechatronics Engineering.

This year’s themes for second year are Dementia care and Smart cities.

Third year student teams were challenged to develop interconnected systems that can change devices or improve environments from a remote distance.

Final year Thesis projects cover a wide range of topics that are supported by the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering.

This is a great opportunity to network with future graduates.
