Symposium Czar: Federico Cipriani

As 46th Symposium Czar, I have the priceless opportunity to coordinate an incredible team of 82 Thermal Power students towards the organisation of the best Engine System Symposium that has ever taken place in Cranfield.

We want to create a platform where students and companies can exchange ideas and experiences.

My team directors and I want to offer to all the students and companies who will join us the opportunity to understand more about the state-of-art of the Gas Turbine world and related topics. More important, we want to create a platform where students and companies can exchange ideas and experiences to push forward the amazing sector of aerospace engineering.
