Past Expositions


Our last annual EPECentre R&D Expo took place on Thursday 13 October on UC Campus and was jointly organised with the College of Engineering Final Year Project Showcase.

The EPECentre was delighted to welcome Mike Underhill (CEO, EECA) as the guest speaker.

About 12 scholars were awarded by Craig Price (BECA, on behalf of Peter Berry, EPECentre Board Chairman) and one by Ranil De Silva (PSC). Three students as well have been awarded for a Best Photo award (Photo competition from the last Field trip) by John Clarke (Transpower). Our industry members were able to attend some live Joule Log Heating tests in the HV lab.

Congratulations to our 2nd and 3rd Pro Undergraduate Scholars!
