2019 Michael Woodhouse Undergraduate Awards

2019 Michael Woodhouse Undergraduate Awards 

Registration from 5.00 pm with the event 5.30 pm to 7.00 pm

Sponsored by the Queensland Water Panel, this Prize is awarded to a speaker at the annual Water Panel Students’ Night.

Each year, undergraduate engineering students from Queensland universities are invited to present the results of their undergraduate research projects in a field related to water engineering.

This is an informal event, with many students presenting works in progress, providing an opportunity for the audience to learn from and comment on, the academic research initiatives. The event is also an opportunity for your university to showcase its research capabilities to members of the water engineering industry. The winner of the Michael Woodhouse Undergraduate Award will showcase the official trophy at their university (complete with engraved winners' name) and receive a monetary prize from the Michael Woodhouse Memorial Fund.

Presenting engineers will exhibit their work to practicing industry representatives with plenty of opportunity for networking at the event. This is invaluable for those looking for future work experience or graduate placements.

Many of our presenting students have successfully secured job placements following the Michael Woodhouse Undergraduate Presentation Event.
