Student Success Stories

Undergraduate Research Symposiums

The undergraduate research conferences provides Purdue undergraduate researchers with numerous opportunities to present their work to the Purdue community. The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) collaborates with the Engineering Undergraduate Research Office (EURO) to host campus-wide conferences each semester.

Being a part of what makes Purdue excellent prepares you for future experiences where you will need to present and apply your work. Being directly involved in the process of discovery, along with the feedback from judges and other student participants during the conference will prove invaluable in your efforts to present your work in the future.

Communicating research through presentations and publications is an important part of the research process. Several options are available to students for showcasing and publishing their work, including the Spring Undergraduate Research Conference, Summer Symposium, and Fall Undergraduate Research Expo. Many undergraduate research programs and academic units also have symposiums and poster sessions throughout the year.
