MIGSAA Industrial Sandpit on 24 November 2017

The 4th MIGSAA Industry Sandpit is being held on Friday 24th November, 2017 at ICMS.

The meeting will start with a sandwich lunch at 12.30, talks start 1.30pm and we aim to be finished by 5pm.

The programme is shown below.  We are waiting on confirmation for the final talk - so it may be necessary to amend the timetable slightly.

The event is set up as a MIGSAA event.  However, it is open to all interested staff and students across the schools and we'd encourage people to come along and find out more.

Please register via the website ( )  This will help ensure there are enough sandwiches!

In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
