Science & Engineering Day 2005

Science & Engineering Day 2005, with an outstanding array of more than 150 research posters, brought together graduate students from across all disciplines and schools of the University. The researchers explained their work to members of the University community —undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and staff. The following research posters were selected for special recognition.

Please note: Linked names will take you to the student's abstract. You will need to enter your kerberos password. You are also able to browse all of the abstracts presented at Science & Technology Day.
