Research Symposium

Detroit Mercy's College of Engineering & Science hosts an annual symposium to highlight the research by undergraduate and graduate students.

Each year, the College invites hundreds of high school students and alumni to experience the academic research achievements of our students. This year we will hold a virtual event to adhere to CDC guidelines. 

The 2021 Engineering and Science Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium will be held Friday, October 29, in the High Bay from approximately 9:30 am-12 pm. We will be utilizing both in-person and live virtual formats for the symposium this year. 

At this event, we will have high school students and alumni visiting as we present our research, hold demonstrations, and enjoy a delicious lunch.  Student researchers will present their data via BOTH a 3-5 minute video summary posted online as well as a printed poster at the venue location. 

Prizes will be awarded to students for research excellence in both Engineering and Science categories, as well as a participant-voted “People’s Choice” award. 

 

Why do we hold this event?

  • Celebrate all the “cool” research projects we're doing,
  • Motivate others to get involved, and
  • Inspire high school students to choose STEM careers.

Join us and judge for yourself!
