FAU 2013 Third Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium Student Awards

FAU 2013 Third Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium Student Awards

Students engaged in undergraduate research presented their findings at the Florida Atlantic University 2013 Third Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium sponsored by Undergraduate Studies, on April 5. The student’s research was presented in the format of a poster presentation or an oral presentation at the event.

Students making a poster presentation were required to stand by their poster to take questions about their research. Each poster was reviewed by at least two people (faculty and graduate student). Students making an oral presentation were given ten minutes to present their findings, with an additional two minutes for audience questions.

The College of Engineering and Computer Science is proud to recognize the following undergraduate students that have been awarded Undergraduate Research Grants for their respective research projects.
