2017 Futures Challenge!

IPWEAQ invites up-and-coming technical professionals to engage with us at our state conference in Townsville, 24-26 October 2017.


Final year students studying engineering and related disciplines will be invited to present their thesis or research project on poster boards at the 2017 IPWEAQ state conference trade exhibition. 


Delegates will offer advice and feedback to students with the top three projects chosen by a panel of judges. The finalists will deliver a 10-minute presentation in the auditorium in a plenary session.


Delegates will vote on the best presentation using the conference APP.


Each student must prepare and print a poster per the requirements of their

university project. The poster will clearly

identify the project title, goals, present relevant background information, and clearly show project achievements. It will demonstrate.
For more information about the Futures Challenge, please contact Craig Moss.
