19 June 2014

Each year, the School of The Built Environment and Architecture runs a series of seminars featuring presentations by researchers on their work. These events provide an opportunity for both students and staff from different disciplines to engage with current research topics and interact with their peers.

An important part of the series consists of a competition for the best student presentations.

Thirteen PhD students took part in the competition this year and special congratulations go to the following three who received first (gold), second (silver) and third (bronze) prizes for their presentations:

  • Gold: Metkel Yebiyo (Optimisation of Inter-seasonal Ground Source Heat Pumps with Predictive Control)
  • Silver: Andrew Oates (Light trapping properties of silicon micro-pillars for radial junction thin film silicon solar cells)
  • Bronze: Samson Ezekiel (Numerical Modelling of a Reinforced Concrete Column subject to Fire)
