Student Posters Session

We are excited to continue bringing to IPEIA … STUDENT POSTERS SESSION!!!

For the first time, Student Poster Sessions were held at the 2020 IPEIA Conference & Exhibition. The students were given the opportunity to showcase their knowledge while networking with industry leaders and experts. The positive feedback was overwhelming from both delegates and students! IPEIA looks forward to the 2021 Student Poster Sessions. STUDENTS apply NOW as space is limited!

We are thrilled to highlight the winner of the Student Poster Session at the 2020 IPEIA Conference & Exhibition… Ms. Tina Chen!


“My experience at IPEIA was above anything I had expected, from the amazing networking opportunities to the delicious food and drinks, it was an unforgettable experience. I was able to meet people from all over the pressure equipment integrity industry, including those who worked for the companies I had applied to. Having a poster meant that I had working professionals approaching me, something that I don’t believe I would have the opportunity to experience in any other situation. I learned more about the industry in my few short days there than all the time I have spent at school. Additionally, as a student who has never presented a poster before this, the feedback I received has been instrumental in helping me complete my capstone project. I would highly recommend any student who is on the fence about submitting an abstract for next year to do it, it only takes 15 minutes to fill out the form to have a chance to spend a few days in Banff.”
