If you've never been to a Research Expo at the Jacobs School, you don't know what you are missing.
There are more than 200 posters, each with a grad student standing there ready to explain the research and it's implications. It's like a real life engineering encyclopedia...where all the entries are cutting edge.
There are also faculty talks, and a keynote by National Academy of Engineering (NAE) member Lawrence Papay entitled "Renewables and America's Energy Future". And speaking of America's energy future, reading Carbon Nation this morning, I stumbled across IEEE Spectrum's "energy wise" blog.
Last year's Research Expo grad student winners are here.
Registration info for folks who want to check out all the talented Jacobs School students is here.
This year, Research Expo is on April 15, 2010, and it starts at 12:30 PM (in the afternoon...not in the morning like it has in past years.)
If you are a grad student at the Jacobs School, make sure to submit your poster. The student poster submission site is here.
