Aegis Professor Undergraduate Competition

The Science Partnership Office in association with the Faculty of Science and Engineering Student Societies brings you the Aegis Professor Undergraduate Competition: an exciting scheme where students have the chance to see how scientific research ideas can be commercialised with the opportunity to win up to £5000.

I appreciated the chance to network with professors at the celebration event. I learned new skills, like presenting and creating informative posters

The celebration event was amazing. It really felt like the work the students had done was being valued and rewarded!
