Michigan Tech GSG to Present Virtual Poster Session at Alumni Reunion

The Graduate Student Government is pleased to announce a virtual poster presentation session at the alumni reunion of 2020. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, considering the overall health and safety of our alumni and faculty as priority, Michigan Tech has decided to host a virtual alumni reunion this year.

The alumni poster presentation session is a continued tradition designed to increase the interaction between graduate students and MTU alumni. It is a unique opportunity for graduate students to share their research work and expand network connections. This event is also a great opportunity for students to work on their presentation skills and prepare for upcoming conferences.

The poster presentation session is open to graduate students from all departments. It will consist of elevator-pitch-style, pre-recorded poster presentations. To register, submit the online registration form. Registration closes on June 17 at 11:59 p.m. and seats are reserved for 8-10 participants only.

Detailed instructions and guidelines to record your presentation will be sent out to you once you have registered. The deadline for participants to submit the presentation video is June 24.

For more information, please contact Sarvada Chipkar at gsg-research@mtu.edu.

GSG is thrilled to announce that registration for this years Graduate Research Colloquium is now open. This years GRC will be held on Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday, April 1.

GRC is a great opportunity to work on your presentation skills and prepare for upcoming conferences. Students are free to give an oral presentation, a poster talk, or both. All talks will be scored by judges from the same field as the presenter, who will give valuable insight and feedback on how you can improve your talk. Cash prizes are available to the top 3 oral and poster presentations.

Registration closes on March 3, at 11:59 PM. Don’t delay, register today.

As an added bonus, GSG will be covering the cost of printing posters this year. We don’t want cost to be a barrier for anyone. If you have research to share, but not enough data for a full oral presentation, the poster session is perfect for you. With us picking up the bill, what have you got to lose? The poster session will be held on March 31, from 4 to 6 p.m. The event will be capped off with the annual GRC Awards Banquet. All participants and judges are invited to attend. The banquet will be held April 1, following the close of GRC.
