Southern Utah University’s Walter Maxwell Gibson College of Science and Engineering will host its sixth annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Monday, November 17, featuring the research projects of more than 100 SUU science and engineering undergraduate students and faculty.

The research projects on display, largely conducted by students under close mentorship from tenured faculty, set Southern Utah University apart from all other colleges and universities in Utah. SUU is the only school with distinguished faculty expertise and research facilities to focuses those resources on undergraduate student learning rather than Research One-level graduate work. The very best of this unique hands-on undergraduate research model will be on display from 5 to 8:30 p.m. in the R. Haze Hunter Conference Center on Monday.

The symposium will open with a keynote speaker, Google software engineer Dr. Robert Gardner, at 5 p.m., followed by a reception at 6 p.m. All events are free and open to the public. Following the reception, SUU’s science and engineering students will open poster sessions and oral presentations that will run throughout the evening.
