A new academic term begins...
The EPS team arrived back in the lab today, and our immediate priority was to finalise the project poster, which will be due tomorrow. The project poster summarises everything the we have achieved so far this year, and all that we hope to achieve before June. Initial feedback has suggested a well designed poster that clearly illustrates a variety of technical work, along with appropriate credit to all of our sponsors.
The project poster for this year may be viewed online in pdf format here: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/eng/meng/esmo/news/posters/
Merry Christmas from the EPS team!
The term at Warwick ends today (10th December). The EPS team would like to wish everyone involved with ESMO a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
EPS team enjoy a Christmas Meal
The EPS team recently had their Christmas meal at Cosmo in Coventry. Special thanks go to Bill Crofts for his kind contribution!
(But the work won't stop here - we have our project poster to complete in less than a week!)
Three members of the EPS team (Adam Lord, Louise Waters and Felicity Kendrick) went to visit Matthew Bradney, the composites sales manager at Prodrive. After a tour of the facility, we were enlightened about the way that the layering and treating process works, and encouraged by Mr. Bradney's enthusiasm and support for the project.
On Monday 22nd November, the EPS team were glad to meet Alex Strothers and Ben Green from Harwin interconnects.
