The 2020 4th Year Project Exhibition & Competition took place virtually on 4th June.

This is an amazing platform that offers 4th Year students the opportunity to showcase their work to representatives from industry, alumni and researchers/academics in the Department of Engineering Science.

Based on the projects completed by all 4th year undergraduate students, students were invited to present a poster on their work to a panel of judges with the aim to winning one of four categories or being the overall winner and a cash prize. The overall winner received not only a further cash prize but also the opportunity to present their project at the Department of Engineering Science Jenkin Lecture in the Autumn.

The 4th Year Project Poster competition has been running since 2001 and continues to provide our undergraduate students with the opportunity to write and present their first academic poster.


Each year our judges give up their free time to work alongside our Director of Fourth Year Studies to assess and judge the 4th Year Project poster competition.

Our judges come from a wide range of backgrounds including alumni, engineers working in industry from large corporates to spinouts and partners working in engineering.

Together they viewed the posters and read the supporting summaries. Jointly they assessed and identified the winners.


This years judges are:

  • Sarah Witt, Sony Ltd
  • Chris Clay, System Design Engineer, Small Modular Reactors Rolls Royce
  • Alex Nairac, Director, Ecrin Investments Ltd
