About the Symposium

The UC Santa Barbara Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Symposium is a one-day forum for graduate students to present their research. The event is designed to provide a networking opportunity between industrial attendees and members of the department with two main goals:

  1. Highlight ongoing work in the department to stimulate industrial collaborations
  2. Facilitate interactions with students seeking future employment opportunities 

The symposium consists of oral presentations given by senior students throughout the day, a lunch and poster session showcasing the work throughout the department, and a catered evening reception. Industrial attendees will receive a flash drive containing the abstracts and CVs of presenting students to enable future connections.
