Research Day

Students looking at research posters

We celebrate graduate student research in the College of Engineering and Computer Science on our annual Research Day. Each Research Day, industry representatives, faculty, and students from a wide range of disciplines learn about novel approaches to solving challenging research problems. Through poster presentations and research pitches, ECS graduate students communicate the intellectual merit and broader impacts of their research.
