Engineering Research Showcase

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Please help us in congratulating our Engineering Research Showcase Award Winners listed below. The School of Engineering's Research and Graduate Programs (RGP) put this event together. They want to thank all of the students who presented, all the judges who volunteered their time and provided valuable feedback, and those who showed up to support our student researchers. Special thanks to the Graduate Engineering Association (GEA) Research & Outreach Committee for all their hard work in facilitating the showcase and to Kathryn Bauguess for her support to promote undergraduate research and awards this year as part of her Self Undergraduate Fellowship Project.
