2019 Symposium Callout!

Are you interested in participating in our sixth annual Graduate Industrial Research Symposium?

Then come to our callout on December 11, 12:00PM-1PM in LILY G401.  There will be free food!

Our next Symposium will be March 25, 2019. Develop your leadership and management skills by volunteering to chair one of our Symposium committees!  We are looking for grad students interested in being marketing, 3MT, session, and poster chairs.

This year, our departmental Symposium will partner with Purdue’s 150 Years of Giant Leaps and other departments on campus so this will be an excellent opportunity to meet new people.  The theme will be Sustainability.

Time commitment:  1-2 hours per week.  Typically, we will have biweekly-weekly meetings during the Spring semester.

The mission and goals of our Symposium can be found here.
