The 2018 annual Manchester Metropolitan University Science & Engineering research symposium is up-on us!
The symposium showcases the great work being undertaken by research students within the Faculty of Science & Engineering. Whether you are a student, early careers researcher, faculty member or a member of the wider scientific community, the annual symposium gives insight into the world-class research taking place in the heart of Manchester.
A single day free event, the symposium is an ideal forum for researchers to meet and exchange ideas in emerging areas of research.

This year’s theme is, Science – whats the point? Why does it matter? And can you explain it? Increasingly, we have to justify what we are doing and communicate it in an accessible way – important for publicising our work, attracting funding and demystifying science to engage the next generation of scientists.
The objective of the symposium are to provide research students with the opportunity to have their work peer-reviewed and to present and publish their work and to provide early career researchers, MRes, MPhil and PhD students with the opportunity to learn the process of organising and running of a conference.
The symposium aims to encourage interdisciplinary research within MMU by both building and strengthening connections between Computer Science, Chemistry, Informatics, Biology, Engineering, Mathematics, Geography, Biomedical Science, Nutrition, Sport, Animal Behaviour, Conservation and related disciplines.
It is a safe environment to practice your research, public speaking, presentation skills before going to a professional research conference
This is an amazing networking opportunity!
