Our postgraduate researchers are on a mission – to tell you what they do and why it matters to you and me. 

I am delighted to invite you to our Postgraduate Showcase. This event offers you the opportunity to meet with world-leading researchers of the future and hear about their transformative ideas and discoveries! During this showcase, you will meet an extraordinary group of postgraduate researchers representing a diverse range of academic disciplines. They will be sharing their research on an array of captivating subjects. Prepare to delve into topics as fascinating as exploring peanuts as nature’s antibiotic, uncovering the world of cosplay as a career, delving into sustainable and disease-free banana development, and examining the impact of the pandemic on students’ lives after graduation, and many more! I hope you have a truly inspiring and enlightening experience. ~ Professor Maniam Kaliannan, Associate Dean of Graduate School

Using only poster, 39 of our postgraduate research students from across both faculties will present their research in a clear and compelling way that would leave you nodding with understanding and wanting to know more.

As they compete for the top prizes, they will weave narratives around their complex and technical research, placing a spotlight on the real-world implications and potential benefits of their work. By doing so, they aim to engage and captivate both the judges and the broader audience, showcasing the practical significance and societal impact of their research.

Regardless of your level of expertise or area of interest, we welcome all from across different disciplines and fields, inviting everyone to join us at this captivating showcase of our postgraduate research. No registration needed so just turn up and engage in conversations with our postgraduate researchers, exchange ideas, and discover the human stories behind their research!

What is it about?

Our Postgraduate Showcase is an annual poster competition for postgraduate research students to showcase their research to a wider audience. Using only poster, this competition challenges postgraduate research students to translate their complex and technical research into a wider picture with broader relevance.

This year, the competition is held as part of the Research and Knowledge Exchange Showcase. As the University launches its new Interdisciplinary Research Clusters, this is an exceptional and unique opportunity for our postgraduate research students to put a spotlight on their research to not only research leaders and senior members of the University, but also the wider audience and general public.
