CMS Graduate Poster Session 2017

cms poster session 2016

Printable program

Each year, graduate students are invited to participate in a poster session hosted by CMS. This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience presenting their research and serves as a way for faculty from all departments to interact with students in different disciplines. MSC 595 and MCOP 593 students are encouraged to participate as they finish up these courses that involve development of research prospectuses and capstone projects, respectively.
