An important practice of graduate researchers is sharing their work with others in the academic community. The UTEP Graduate Research Expo is an annual event that offers graduate students the opportunity to present their research in a local academic conference environment. The Expo showcases the quality of research that is being conducted by our graduate students and their faculty mentors, as UTEP is poised to become a national research university with a 21st century student demographic.
Graduate students can deliver either a poster presentation or an oral presentation. Students share their work and gain confidence in their presentation skills. Students are also offered feedback from faculty to enhance their projects and their presentations. Top presentations earn rewards.
The Expo is open to the public, and all UTEP students, in particular, are encouraged to attend. This year's Expo is on November 7, 2013 and takes place at the UTEP Union. It is an all-day event. The deadline to submit an entry to present at the EXPO is October 10, 2013.
This event is made possible by a grant from the US Department of Higher Education through the "Promoting Postbaccalaurate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans" Program.
