Since 2001, The 4th Year Project Poster Exhibition & Competition provides an opportunity for 4th year undergraduate students to present their research and work to a variety of groups including industry representatives, alumni, and researchers & academics.

The posters were evaluated by a panel of industry representatives (including Engineering Science alumni) and the Director of 4th Year Studies, Professor Chris Macminn. They were scored on aesthetics, clarity, technical quality, and impact/innovation, with winners across different categories. The overall winner is given the opportunity to present their project at The Department’s annual Jenkin Lecture; part of the Alumni 'Meeting Minds' Weekend in autumn.
