The week culminates in an exciting all-day event on Friday, May 17 from 10:30 am – 4:45 pm at the UCI Bren Events Center, where all undergraduate students can present their research via Poster Presentations in one of two poster sessions. Two arts showcases will also take place, featuring a variety of student artistic performances. We encourage all presenters to enjoy the full day of activities by engaging with the poster presenters, watching artistic performances, and networking with industry representatives.

Corporate sponsors will be tabling and we highly recommend students to bring their resumes/CVs. The purpose of corporate tabling at the Symposium is to provide corporations with the opportunity to interact and network with attendees and student presenters. Networking offers the chance to establish connections and potentially secure future jobs and internships! Click here for more information.
