Graduate Research Expo 2016: Submit Abstract by Jan. 6

The College of Engineering's second annual Graduate Student Research Expo is an event that offers graduate students the opportunity to present their research to a professional engineering audience. Industry professionals, prospective students, faculty and the public are invited to meet our graduate students and hear about their research. Please register and submit your abstract online for consideration no later than January 6, 2016. We will contact you after January 25 to inform you if you have been accepted as a presenter. A total of 51 graduate students from the School of MIME will be selected to represent our school and participate in this expo.
