Research Day

The Department of Geosciences hosts an annual Research Day at the end of every Spring semester. The aim of the day is to showcase current research activities in the Department, provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, and expose under-graduate and graduate students to the experience of presenting their research in a conference-like environment. Faculty and associated researchers also present their ongoing research along side students.

Posters will be presented on the second floor of the Science Building from 10:30 am. Refreshments will be served and a judging panel will be responsible for selecting the best posters from under-graduate and graduate students. Prize winners will be announced towards the end of lunch.
