More than 100 students presented their research posters and presentations in the Student Research Symposium on April 20, 2017. The Symposium showcases the work of the College’s undergraduate and graduate student researchers. It also emphasizes the applicability of our faculty members’ research to current industry and employer needs.
Sixty-one undergraduate and 49 graduate students presented at the event, which was held on the first and second floors of the IT Building. The posters were divided into 18 interdisciplinary areas: Alternative Energy, Antennas, Autonomous Vehicles, Biomedical Engineering, Cybersecurity, Data Analysis, Engines, Environmental Engineering, Imaging and Virtual Reality, Infrastructure, Materials, Micro- and Nano-grids, Networks, Power Supply, Robotics, STEM Education, Thermodynamics, and Vehicle Design & Testing.
“Our students and faculty devoted a lot of hard work into preparing their presentations. I strongly believe that our graduates will realize the rewards of participating in academic research as they enter the professional world and demonstrate the strengths of a hands-on education at Georgia Southern,” said Mohammad Davoud, dean of the College. The annual symposium promotes research within the College and demonstrates the value of research for all students. “At least 40 representatives of industry, students and faculty from throughout the University, as well as Georgia Southern President Jaimie Hebert, attended the 2017 Symposium,” Davoud said. “Everyone was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism of the presentations and the maturity of the research presented.”
The 2018 Student Research Symposium will start at 1:00pm on Thursday, April 19 in the IT Building. Please contact Ms. Barbara Gooby in the Dean’s Office to plan your attendance or to submit a presentation (firstname.lastname@example.org, 912-478-7170).
