This event is a showcase of research and scholarly activities conducted by undergraduate students from the College of Engineering at Kansas State University. This on-campus event provides students an opportunity to share their research activities with fellow K-State students and faculty and to gain experience presenting their work in a professional setting. This year's event will be held on Thursday, April 26, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, in the Engineering Hall Atrium.  Anyone interested in undergraduate research is welcome to attend. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.

Participants are assigned a presentation time slot. The first group will present while the second group observes and then the second group will present while the first group observes. To be eligible for poster reimbursement and scholarships, presenters must attend the entire poster forum.

Students must select a division in which they will participate.  Posters will be divided into:

  • Undergraduate research posters
  • Student design/build/competition projects OR class design/research projects
