Tentative Schedule for 2015 ISE:

Open House 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Awards Ceremony 4:00-5:00 p.m.

In our 12th year, ISE celebrates the scholarly achievements and research of hundreds of undergraduates. Each year, students present their research through posters, demonstrations, and oral presentations. Students also answer questions from a synergistic mix of fellow students, family members, faculty, administration, industry and alumni. Presentations represent a multitude of disciplines, many interdisciplinary, including earth, environmental, biological, computer and physical sciences, civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics and statistics, physics, and chemistry.

The ISE Symposium features student research with science, engineering and math perspectives, giving students an opportunity to interact with peers and gain professional experience presenting research.  The program includes a poster session, remarks from University leaders, and an awards ceremony. The ISE Planning Committee identifies judges and creates a judging schedule. Each project is judged by three to five judges who may be an academic from within the discipline, an academic from another discipline, or from industry. Participants are scheduled for ten minutes with their judges to stand in front of their poster and make a brief oral presentation providing an overview of their research project and answering questions.
