2018 SEH Symposium

2018 School of Science, Engineering, and Health Symposium

The 16th Annual Symposium was held on Friday, May 4, 2018.

Students presented on the research and work that they had been doing. Parents, families, and friends found out the work that had been part of their student's lives. It was 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. It was 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.

The Engineering Department had 29 presentations during the 2018 Symposium in two venues and 27 posters presented during the morning and afternoon poster sessions, and, as always, a simultaneous webcast!

The Engineering Presentations are part of the School of Science, Engineering and Health Symposium.  You can find out more information about the Symposium as a whole at the Symposium website.

Webcast

The presentations was webcast.  Archives of the three webcasts can be accessed below.  Currently all presentations for one session are in one archive. The starting time in the archive is given for the first presentation in that archive and each subsuequent presentation is 20 minutes after that time with the exception of the hour long poster session.  Sorry for the inconvenience of this format.
