Endeavour Information Session

Wednesday 8 March, 3:00 - 4:00pm

Find out what you need to know to participate in Endeavour, from key dates, how to find your group or establish your project. There will be a Q&A with an academic and the events team so you will know what to expect throughout the semester and on the day of the exhibition.

Poster design workshop

Tuesday 21 March, 3:00 - 4:00pm

For the exhibition, your team will need to create a poster to visually explain your project. You can share written summaries, images and data to help the visitors understand your project and show what you’ve discovered. This workshop will give you tips and advice for creating an engaging poster that can boost your marks and attract more attendees to your booth.

Poster requirements:

  • A0 size (84.1cm x 118.9cm) portrait
  • Save as  PNG or JPG file
  • The University of Melbourne logo may not be used on your posters
  • Ensure you receive permission to use any industry logos
  • Poster to include the project title, all team member names, supervisor's name, and discipline
  • File name to include your "booth number, team leaders name, Endeavour poster"
  • Submit via the dropbox link provided via email

Please ensure all the requirements are met before submitting your poster.

Awards, presentation and networking workshop

Thursday 30 March, 3:00 - 4:00pm

Engage with the general public, industry partners and work on how to ‘sell’ you project so your audience can appreciate your hard work. Communicating your ideas and results can also be a key part of how you can win prizes and awards – so don’t underestimate the power of an elevator pitch.

Risk management workshop

Wednesday 5 April, 3:00 - 4:00pm

What is a risk matrix and how do you fill one out? On the day of the exhibition, we’ll need to know if you’re bringing in props or displays. This is an important skill for all engineering projects so you can conduct your work safely and efficiently.

What is the risk assessment for?

This is an extension of the risk assessment you would have already completed in your capstone unit. Revise the risks and hazards that you have previously recorded and add additional risks that are relevant to the Endeavour Exhibition.

If you have not created a risk assessment before, please create a new one.
