Middlesex University Dubai Holds 7th Annual Student Research Symposium


Middlesex University Dubai held its 7th Annual Student Research Symposium (SRS) on 18 November 2018 at its Knowledge Park campus. The SRS was an excellent display of our students’ research acumen and their passion for furthering their knowledge of their respective disciplines. It was also a great opportunity for past and current students to network while they showcased their projects to faculty, peers, friends and family. Our colleagues from Middlesex University Dubai London, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Andrea D’Laska, and Pro Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean Anna Kyprianou, spoke highly of the event and emphasised the high quality of research.
