The SAIMechE Central Branch, in conjunction with the participating universities (Tshwane University of Technology, University of Johannesburg, University of Pretoria and the University of the Witwatersrand), and industry hosted a Mechanical Post Graduate Student Conference on 17 November 2017.

The conference gave exposure to industry and other students to the leading edge post graduate research that is being done at the universities that created the opportunity of cooperation between researchers and industry, in cases where mutual beneficial work is being done (ownership and patent rights being observed). It gave the general engineering fraternity the opportunity to expose themselves to current research being conducted at local universities and new developments in mechanical engineering and as such ensure continual professional development.

The conference offered varied content to fulfill the interest of a wide audience. Papers incorporate engineering research into heat transfer, refrigeration, coatings, welding, solar systems and biomedical applications were presented. 

View the presentations, abstracts and papers that were submitted as well as some photographs taken at the conference.

Here's an article by Dr Frank Kienhoffer (MSAIMechE) at Wits University providing some feedback and photos of the conference.
