The Research Symposium Series is a department-sponsored forum for graduate students and advanced-level undergraduates to present their research to a general audience. The Research Symposium Series is designed to:
- Facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge among faculty and graduate students.
- Provide opportunities for students to develop their technical presentation skills.
- Promote the research activities of the department to undergraduates and other interested individuals.
