The SURE presentation schedule and abstract book are at .

Meet with the students and see all 106 projects on April 14 at Clarkson University.

The symposium was established as a forum for undergraduate students to present the results of their scholarly experiences. The program's goal is to recognize and encourage students who are actively participating in various research and projects.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
