Congratulations to Matt Gear who was one of 113 participants in the University of Queensland Engineering Architecture and IT Faculty Conference for Postgraduate Students, taking home the prize for Best 1st Year Presentation in Mechanical and Mining Engineering.

Matt was presenting work from his PhD research being conducted as part the Steel Research Hub’s Innovative Coating Technologies Program under the supervision of Chief Investigator, Associate Professor, Kazuhiro Nogita. The University of Queensland’s (UQ) annual Postgraduate Student Conference was established seven years ago. Students are invited to present their research findings to academics, industry partners and their peers. In addition to providing a forum for students to share and demonstrate their efforts, the conferences give students critical experience in communicating their research, allowing them to build confidence in this important skill. Students are judged by a panel of UQ academics, with prizes awarded at the end of the event in a number of different categories.
