Graduate Research Symposium Fall 2012

Conducting excellent research is a serious business at the UPRM Department of Chemical Engineering. A clear evidence of the diverse participation in research at our department was demonstrated at our Graduate Research Symposium. This event was held last Friday, November 30th, 2012 at Celis 116.  More than 50 graduate students and professors attended this event organized by Prof. Ubaldo M. Córdova as part of the graduate seminar course. The symposium offered 8 talks and a poster session, all by graduate students. It was also an opportunity for first year students to learn more about research projects from other groups and colleagues. 
As part of our efforts to improve communication skills in research among graduate researchers, top 3 posters and oral presentations was selected based on evaluation from professors and students.
