FENS Research Day

FENS Research Day

As the members of the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, we conduct cutting edge research activities using state of the art facilities. Our daily tasks keep us busy during days, as well as nights. We were motivated to organize the FENS Research Day to realize an instant of gathering, to hear and talk about each other's research topics. We facilitated our graduate student to perform both oral and poster presentations. We hope that this opportunity will see many invigorating discussions.
