Formerly known as Postgraduate Research Day, the College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science (CAES) has been hosting this conference highlighting postgraduate research since 2013. CAES is recognised internationally as a centre of excellence in research, innovation, teaching and community outreach.
 
The event draws participation from students in each of our five Schools.
 
The event has grown from 36 oral presentations, 31 poster presentations and 100 attendees in 2013; to 60 oral presentations, 159 oral poster presentations and over 700 attendees in 2017.
 
The College has also used the event to build relationships with members of industry. Industrial partners attend the event to view the research, exhibit their offerings, judge the submissions and sponsor prizes.
