2017 SEH Symposium

2017 SEH Symposium

2017 School of Science, Engineering and Health Symposium

The 14th Annual Symposium was held on Friday, April 28, 2017.

Be sure to join us as students present on the research and work that they have been doing. Parents, families, and friends can find out the work that has been part of their student's lives. This is a good opportunity for alumni to hear first hand about the exciting work going on here at Messiah and maybe hear how the work that you started is being continued. This is also a good place for high school students to find out about what is involved in the different professions that are represented in our school. All are invited to attend!

This year the Engineering Department will had a record 31 presentations in two venues and 26 posters presented during the morning and afternoon poster sessions, and, as always, a simultaneous webcast!

Webcast

The presentations were also webcast.
