Writing A Thesis, Learn First Hand!

Posted: April 9, 2018 in Uncategorized

The Undergraduate Research Symposium provides an opportunity for students to present their work in a scholarly setting to students, faculty and other members of the University of Utah community. Undergraduate students from all disciplines are invited to present their research and creative work.

Oral Presentations start every 20 minutes (15 minutes long, 3 minutes for questions, 2 minutes to transition to the next presenter).

Visual aids should be used if at all possible. A projector and screen/TV will be available — presenters are responsible for bringing a laptop and any necessary adapters. Students are strongly advised to ensure proper connection to the projector before the oral session begins. Out of professional courtesy, all presenters and audience are expected to stay for the entire session. Presentation schedules will be strictly enforced.

Poster Presentations can be up to 48 inches wide x 36 inches high (no tri-fold or foam poster boards allowed). Poster templates provided by the Office of Undergraduate Research available at: View Templates in Powerpoint. Additional poster templates and instructions can be found on the Marriott Library’s Webpage.
An overview of poster design and presentation can be found here: Creating Effective Poster Presentations.
Posters will be attached to fabric display boards with pushpins (provided).

Presenters must be at their poster and available to discuss it for the entire session. To pay for poster printing, please first check with your faculty mentor and department for funding options. If you cannot afford to pay for the poster yourself, the Office of Undergraduate Research can offer support to those students needing financial aid.
