About the Symposium

The 2017 SURF program culminates with a Research Symposium, where participants will present their summer research either at an oral session or a poster session. This event provides a great opportunity for the Purdue community to learn more about the interesting and innovative research being conducted by undergraduates in various labs across campus.
