SEPnet Annual EXPO success for UH Student

11 January 2019

Aoife Simpson, an MPhys Astronomy student was awarded a prize by Professor Sir Bill Wakeham at the SEPnet EXPO for her work with the University of Surrey on Probing Dwarf Galaxy Quenching.

The SEPnet summer placement scheme provides opportunities for undergraduates in their 2nd and 3rd year to conduct eight-week paid placements. The scheme not only provides a transfer of knowledge across the South East of England, it also increases the employability prospects of physics students.

The annual SEPnet EXPO is a celebration of physics students’ achievements, where students give presentations and display posters about their summer projects. Over 100 students, academics and employers attended this networking event on 28th November, where they heard inspirational industry speakers and visited employer stands.

The scheme is highly rewarding to both students and employers. It introduces students to the scientific workplace and acts as an invaluable resource for employers looking for a fresh perspective on their business challenges.
