2018 Student Research Poster Competition: A Decade of Discoveries

An event so big we had to move to the Union! $10,000 in prizes will be awarded! Join us as we celebrate ten years of high-impact student research. 

The Student Research Poster Competition is the highlight of our academic year. Doing research and presenting findings to an audience of professional engineers underscores the distinctive opportunities students have here at one of the nation’s top research universities – a rare opportunity that adds to the prestige of the journey to becoming a UW-Milwaukee Engineer.
