The program and abstracts for the 2018 DMTC Student Conference to be held on 9 October in Melbourne are now available.
The event is held in conjunction with our partners Defence Science Institute (DSI) and the Research Training Centre for Naval Design & Manufacturing (RTCNDM) at the Australian Maritime College.
The conference is designed to give PhD and Masters candidates the opportunity to professionally present their work to peers. It is a great opportunity to network with other PhD candidates in the Defence sector. Question and answer sessions follow each presentation and we encourage industry participants and supervisors to attend and ask questions of the students.
