The annual student-initiated, student-run symposium features research papers, oral presentations, and poster displays from undergraduate and graduate students in the engineering disciplines. An ‘Art in Science’ competition will also be featured to showcase the artistic viewpoints often found in scientific explorations. CERS also provides students opportunities to network with industry representatives, faculty, and researchers from various fields.

Albert D. Diaz, vice president in the Data Center Group and general manager of the Product Collaboration and Systems Division at Intel Corporation, will deliver the keynote address at noon.

Research/travel grants for best paper and poster presentations and ‘Art in Science’ awards will be presented during a ceremony at the conclusion of the program.
