The Poster Exhibition on Engineering Research Competition is co-hosted by the Cockrell School’s Engineering Student Services and the Student Engineering Council, and is an excellent opportunity for engineering undergraduates to present their research findings to a series of judges. PEER provides for students a supportive environment to gain experience in technical presentations as well as witness the groundbreaking research conducted by their peers.
