Past Conferences

We are pleased to present the proceedings of our past Annual UHD Student Research Conferences sponsored by several federal, state agencies, and the UHD Scholars Academy in the College of Sciences and Technology. Over 300 guests, faculty, and students attended the Spring 2019 conference, in which 140 undergraduate authors and co-authors from UHD presented a total of 8 oral presentations and 87 poster presentations.

Research presented resulted from projects conducted by our students at UHD and elsewhere in national competitive academic internships and corporate programs. We are proud of the effort that these high-achieving students put into their research presentations, and we trust that each presenter found their experience challenging and rewarding. The research conducted by many of these students has served as a springboard for participation in local, regional and national conferences.

SRC 2020 will include mentored research posters that will highlight student experiences that reflect our student's commitment to learning and servicing our community.
