Ultra Precision Engineering Conference

The Ultra Precision Engineering Conference organised by the 2015/16 cohort of MRes students took place on 9 May at the Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge.

The annual event showcased advances in ultra precision engineering in fields such as aerospace, medical devices, metrology, non-conventional processes and photonics.

The students were set the challenge of sourcing speakers, a venue, managing a budget and recruiting attendees.
