Research Bridges Symposium 2015

Strengthening the Bridge Between Industry & Academia

On July 9, 2015, Western's Chemical and Biochemical Engineering graduate students showcased various research projects through presentations and posters at the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park. 

Presentations highlighted future industrial and commercial applications of the research projects, and were judged by a panel of judges from industry and the community.

Research Bridges provides insight into emerging research trends and ensures that the needs of our local industries are considered in the Faculty of Engineering's future research directions and projects.
