Afterwards our students showcased their research and College of Engineering staff demonstrated the world class research facilities at Swansea University’s Bay Campus.
Dr Patrick Dodds, Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow at the College of Engineering said ‘It is great that news of Swansea University’s Engineering Department has reached India and that Suneel came to visit. Suneel was extremely impressed with the facilities and the research taking place within Swansea and it’s something we should be proud of.’
