University Research Symposium

This competitive program sponsors select SAMPE student members to present the results of their technical research each year. There are categories for Senior undergraduates, as well as Masters and Doctoral candidates. The best papers presented in each student category are awarded cash prizes, while winners in the doctoral category are further sponsored to present their papers at SAMPE conferences in Europe and Japan.

 

Attendance at this event is open to all SAMPE 2018 attendees.
