As our department celebrates its Semisesquicentennial year, we are holding the Annual Research Student Symposium on July 30-31, 2021. The Symposium provides research students in our department at various phases of their degree a unique platform to showcase their works to colleagues. The event this year is planned to be fully online and features oral and poster presentations by students, talks by external speakers and an image and video contest. We welcome all of you to the symposium.
