Undergraduate Project Presentation (UPP) is a fun, fast and exciting competition that gives students the opportunity to present their projects to a variety of Industry leaders and peers who’ll be in attendance online.  It’s also a great way to show your work to potential future employers!

UPP is open to all 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th year engineering students from ANU, UC and UNSW.  Students will be allotted 3 minutes to present on a research topic they’ve undertaken, followed by questions from the judging panel.  Numbers are limited so a shortlist may need to be selected.  The order of presentations will be decided by ballot in advance of the event. 

Industry, friends, family and supporters welcome to register to watch the presentations.  There will be a live poll at the end of the presentation to select the audience favourite.
