The Annual Poster Exhibition Competition (sponsored by the Cockrell School Student Affairs Office and the Student Engineering Council), was held on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM in the ETC “T-Room” Atrium, and was a wonderful opportunity for engineering undergraduates to present their research findings to a panel of judges (including EAB members, professors, and graduate students).

We would like to thank you for participating in this year’s exhibition! We had an amazing turn out and had a lot of great posters! Below are the winners of the competition.
