The Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture held its Showcase event on Tuesday 26th October at Engineers House in Bristol, which was followed by a celebratory dinner at the Hotel Du Vin, Avon Gorge.
The event marked the launch of a brochure to summarise the IDC activities, highlighting the taught units, IDC research projects including articles on Research Engineer journeys and their study tours. The IDC has been running since 2013 and recently recruited its final student, therefore the Showcase and brochure marks this milestone. The Showcase was a special cohort building and feedback event for the IDC Research Engineers to celebrate their achievements, as well as the support from our industrial collaborators and academic partners and supervisors.
Many IDC Alumni, academic and industrial supervisors attended, along with some specially invited VIP guests. The Showcase proved to be a wonderful opportunity for the cohort to come together in person and provide an insight into their diverse research activity in composites manufacture through a series of oral and poster presentations.
Prizes awarded for the best poster went to:
1st Prize: Claudia Jimenez Martin “Forming of Complex Aerostructures for Next Generation Aircraft Wings”
2nd Prize: Preetum Mistry “The Design of a Lightweight Composite Railway Axle”
