From 8th – 10th April 2019, the College of Science held its annual undergraduate research conference.

Hosted in the University’s Engine Shed, the conference brought together various Schools within the College to showcase students’ diverse research that has been conducted as part of their studies at Lincoln.

Level 4  MEng students presented their group projects to a panel of academic staff and industry representatives in the Siemens Boardroom on campus. Project groups were multidisciplinary and comprised mechanical and electrical engineering students, with topics as diverse as electrospinning polymers (in conjunction with the School of Mathematics & Physics) and biomechanics. All projects were of a high standard and motivated further work in their respective areas.


Level 3 students gave poster presentations relating to their individual project modules in the University’s Engine Shed, assessed by teams of academic staff. Again, the quality of work on display was very high. Some students will continue this research as part of their Masters’ level study, and/or some projects could be adopted by the companies or research teams who set them in place.

The School of Engineering would like to thank Siemens for use of their facilities, and Beatrix Fahnert for her hard work in setting up another successful conference.
