SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The Annual Student Research Poster Competition, held April 21, 2018 at the UWM Union, is a premier event at which undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students showcase both incremental and game-changing discoveries they’ve made through months and sometimes years of work in our labs and with our faculty. Students present their research, translating the value of their work to an engaged audience of professional engineers. Through the spirit of competition, ideas are nurtured, exchanged, rewarded and sometimes even given a head start on a path toward innovation and commercialization. The process inspires students to press forward for more exploration, discovery and innovation.
The annual Student Research Poster Competition is an exciting and rewarding way to help fuel the next generation of UW-Milwaukee Engineers and plant the seeds of support for future generations.
