Nearly 70 posters featuring undergraduate research were presented at the 4th Annual Research Symposium in the Engineering High Bay on October 14.

“Our College prides itself on our commitment to students and their success at Detroit Mercy,” said Dr. Gary Kuleck, Dean of the College of Engineering & Science.  “Engaging in these activities [Research Symposium], especially as an undergraduate is transformational, inspirational and a major step forward in career discernment and development.”

Posters at the Symposium covered the entire spectrum of the College from all disciplines of engineering to biology, chemistry and software engineering.  Additional posters in the social sciences were on display from scholars in the ReBUILDetroit program.

“You get to work closely alongside professors,” said software engineering student, Colton Wirgau.  “You gain valuable knowledge working hand-in-hand with your professors.”

More than 125 high school students participated in the annual event by “investing” money in the project they believe is most promising.

Faculty and College alumni served as judges selecting top engineering, science and research projects based on scientific quality, merit and entrepreneurialism.  View a complete listing of winners and abstracts.

Detroit Mercy offers undergraduates unique opportunities to be involved in scientific discovery.
