Undergraduate student presents final year project at two conferences

Monika Rabka, a Computer Systems Engineering student, presented at international conference, as well as London Met’s Student and Staff Research Conference.

Date: 10 September 2021

Computer Systems Engineering BEng student, Monika Rabka, presented her final year project at two conferences - an incredible achievement for an undergraduate student.

Monika first presented her project at the World Conference on Smart Trends in Systems, Security and Sustainability (WORLDS4) 2021 in July, then presented again at this year’s Student and Staff Research Conference 2021.

Her project, titled ‘Real-time Autonomous Horticulture Monitoring System’ (RAHMS), focuses on the idea of a smart greenhouse. Between climate change and the increasing demand for food as the global population grows in mind, her goal was to design a real-time, low-power consuming and self-sufficient system. Monika created a prototype of the system, which testes successfully in a small greenhouse. 

Monika said: “Given that the Student and Staff Research Conference is me postgraduate and research students,I felt very privileged and grateful that my undergraduate work was chosen to be included. I think that it’s great that London Met allows students to showcase our hard work and gives us a chance at networking. 

“The experience of attending the conference, despite it being virtual, was fantastic, and I even ended up being the runner-up for Best Poster! Also, being a part of this conference immensely helped me prepare myself for my first international conference at WORLDS4 and I would like to thank the Research and Postgraduate Office for the great opportunity.”
