4th Annual Jackson School Student Research Symposium

Each spring semester, Jackson School students present their research in a day-long poster competition. Throughout the day, judges comprised of faculty, research scientists, and industry representatives evaluate the posters. At the closing ceremony, 1st- and 2nd-place poster awards are presented in the following categories: Undergraduate, Early-Career Graduate, Late-Career Masters, and Late-Career Ph.D. Another award is given to the best represented research group(s). The award amounts is poster below. The goal of the Symposium is to provide cross-disciplinary collaboration among graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty/research scientists at the Jackson School.

 

This year we are changing the Symposium organization. AM and PM poster sessions will each have two full judging categories represented. Judges will only be assigned to one judging category, and we have a new judging criteria sheet! We hope these changes will make for an improved experience for everyone!
