Save the date: Undergraduate Research Symposium 2011

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an all-day event at the end of the fall semester designed to bring together students, faculty, alumni, family, friends, prospective students, the campus community, local schools, student professional societies, technology vendors, and industry professionals. It will highlight significant technological advances and innovations and the important role they will play in meeting future challenges. The intent of the event is to give participating students a taste of the professional experience in supportive learning space.

In addition, the symposium will feature industry panels, student panels, and a keynote address focused on technological innovation and the role of technology in society.

Computer Engineering Technology students from the College of Technology and Industrial Design students from the College of Architecture — ranging from freshmen to seniors — will have an opportunity to showcase their research and present their work with the wider audience. At the end of the day, a panel of judges composed of faculty, industry experts, lab managers, teaching assistants and peers will select and recognize the best research projects.
