Engineering undergraduate students participate in the first Engineering Undergraduate Research Poster Forum
The first Engineering Undergraduate Research Poster Forum on April 22 in the the College of Engineering Atrium included 22 poster presentations from five different engineering departments. Research topics included advanced manufacturing and materials, energy, nuclear engineering and sensors, and systems and networks, among other topics. Twenty-six faculty, staff and graduate students were involved in judging the posters, and many others stopped by to view the research posters.
The forum was sponsored by the engineering research and graduate programs office. Learn more about the forum and view a full list of participants and posters.
Winners from the K-State Engineering Undergraduate Research Poster Forum include:
