Students celebrated at Thesis Day

Published: 31 May 2022

With over 100 students exhibiting their degree projects with scientific posters of their findings, Thesis Day was a great success. After two years of digital events, this year’s Thesis Day was held physically at Alnarp and Ultuna campuses.

The event included a poster exhibition and oral presentations, an awards ceremony, as well as a much appreciated recognition ceremony, where the students received a rose and thank you.

In addition to the live events, Thesis Day included a digital poster exhibition with all the posters, a summary of the project and information about the students. All posters have a focus on sustainability from different perspectives. The exhibition has already had over 500 visitors and will be open until next year’s Thesis Day.
