The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) is hosting the Research Symposium for the spring 2012 semester on April 13, 1–3 p.m. outside of the Engineering G-wing.
Students in the FURI program will be presenting their exciting projects and showcasing their hard work to the public. It is an important experience for these students in order to learn to be comfortable and confident promoting their work and themselves.
Katherine Ruh, a FURI researcher and senior in biomedical engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, describes her personal insight into the Research Symposiums as “a great opportunity for students to shine as individuals and to further their desire to continue in research.”
Now in her third semester of the FURI program, Ruh has found that the symposium is a great way to become more comfortable talking to people in this type of environment, and gain experience designing an appealing and efficient poster to aid in presentations. She also finds that the symposiums are a great way for students to learn about the research and innovative ideas of her peers.
Ruh says, “I think the symposiums provide a valuable experience for young engineers.”
Attend the Research Symposium this spring and see what lies ahead for the future of engineering.
