2017 Research Expo Winners

The Jacobs School held its annual Research Expo on Thursday, April, 20, 2017.

Read the wrap-up story.

At Research Expo 2017, more than 200 graduate students from all six of our engineering departments presented their research results at the poster session. Faculty members from new agile research centers at the Jacobs School gave exciting TED-style talks. Attendees had many opportunities to make connections with Jacobs School faculty, graduate students, alumni and other industry attendees at the reception and throughout the half-day event.

Many thanks to our Research Expo 2017 corporate sponsors ViaSat, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Leidos, Northrop Grumman, Cubic, ASML Cymer, as well as our Jacobs School Corporate Affiliates Program, judges, students, attendees and promotional partners who made the event a great success.
