All students, staff and faculty from all disciplines are encouraged to register for an opportunity to display or present their academic achievements, research, innovations, community service, creations and talents.

Traditional research poster presentations, electronic and non-print projects, electronic slide shows, three-dimensional objects (model, costume, etc.), or another multimedia exhibit (video, interactive installation, etc.), as well as oral presentations (lightning-talk, poetry slam, performances, etc.) will be accepted as a type of presentation.

The achievement event coincides with the College of Engineering & Science’s Undergraduate Research Week, which runs from April 15-19. With any questions, please contact Ann Serra at or 313-993-1469 or Michele Favoretto at or 313-993-1428.
