Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Symposium (ISE)

ISE celebrates the scholarly achievements and research of hundreds of undergraduates. Each year, students present their research through posters, demonstrations, and oral presentations (and have an opportunity to interact with their peers and gain professional experience presenting their research). 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. We hope you enjoy exploring the projects showcasing the hard work of our students.
