​Each year, the University of Michigan College of Engineering (COE) holds the Engineering Graduate Symposium, a college-wide event focusing on doctoral and master’s programs and graduate student research. This program is open to all COE undergraduate and graduate students as well as prospective graduate engineering students from other institutions. The day-long program, held this year on Friday, November 10, features numerous opportunities for students. They are able to:

  • Showcase research in poster presentations
  • Receive constructive feedback on your poster and presentation skills from faculty
  • Monetary prizes for best presenters in each technical track
  • Networking with graduate students
  • Featured speakers
  • Attend sponsor information booths, info sessions, or interviews

One component of the symposium is a competition–all students submitting abstracts are eligible. This year, two doctoral students from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering won awards.

Technical Session Winners:

Houtan Jebelli
EEG-based Field Construction Workers’ Stress Measurement

Daeho Kim
