Students Poster Competition

ASEE-SE Annual Meeting welcomes undergraduate students' posters related to their engineering experiences, including but not limited to education. Poster topics related to technical design and/or engineering research activities are strongly encouraged.

The undergraduate students poster session is a competition. The chair of the ASEE-SE Research Division organizes the competition and judging. Award certificates are given out in three categories: (1) Individual, (2) Freshman/Sophomore Design Team, and (3) Junior/Senior Design Team. The students poster competition is restricted to undergraduate students as presenters.

Students must first submit an extended abstract for review. If the abstract is accepted, then a complete poster is submitted for final review. Abstracts and posters are submitted online through the ASEE-SE paper management system OpenConf. Key dates for the student posters are listed below.

The conference will provide a presentation easel, one foam-core board, and four, large size binder clips to attach the poster to the board. Presenters should print their poster content at home, and bring the poster to the conference (the conference is not able to print the posters).
