Robotics Competition

June 9 and 10

Undergraduate Research Conference and Poster Day

Each year, upper level science students who have been working on research or projects at TRU are required to participate in a poster presentation day. Projects and presentation are judged by a team of professors and students and then graded based on the outcome.

This university-wide event has a history of being a rich and exciting opportunity for undergraduate students of all disciplines and backgrounds to present their research and other creative works, and to share their intellectual experiences and innovations with their peers in an engaging atmosphere. A wide variety of presentations are always welcome, including, but not limited to, oral presentations, art exhibitions, displays, research posters, and performances.
