2017 Poster Showcase

The 2017 Bachelor of Social Science Poster Showcase was held in the Terrace Room of the Sir Llew Edwards Building (#14) on Thursday 26 October.

Students have worked in teams on projects linking them with industry partners in both public and private sectors, allowing them to apply the research skills learnt during their degree to a current social issue or problem.
