uOttawa CSME Chapter is hosting a networking event with the National Research Council

The uOttawa CSME (Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering) Chapter will host a networking event with the National Research Council of Canada. This event will host to a panel of researchers from NRC, CSME, uOttawa, Carleton, and other industries to present projects, share ideas, and network with undergraduate and graduate students of the Faculty. It will be a great event for students to network with professionals, and an awesome opportunity for professors, CSME, NRC, and other researchers to exchange and share project ideas, information, and possibly partnership.

The evening will commence by a brief introduction speech by the CSME uOttawa chapter, followed by three individual speakers and a discussion panel. There will be a designated time for questions after each presentation. The discussion panel will present two different speakers who will present their research on engineering materials. The other two individual speakers will discuss their research in aerospace, thermal comfort, and solar panels. The last 80 minutes of the event will consist of a networking period. Additionally, students will be presenting posters on their research projects during the networking period.

Join and network with 40 NRC Research Officers and industry professionals. It is your chance to expose your talents. Students are welcome to bring research or project posters to present. Please note that board posters are limited –  sign up now by using this Eventbrite link to register. https://bit.ly/2sVqasA.

Designing and executing an effective literature search – our librarian gave a seminar

Evan Sterling, our Science and Engineering librarian, gave a special seminar for us.

Mystified by trying to find information in a new research area? Daunted by the idea of doing a research term paper or a thesis lit review? In this presentation, Evan discussed how to design and execute an effective literature search, and showed us tips and tricks for Scopus and Zotero.

In case you missed it, you can see the presentation from his slides here:
