In a collaboration between the Undergraduate Research Students’ Association (URSA) and the Office of Undergraduate Research, the symposium offers students from all majors and disciplines the opportunity to showcase their research in an oral presentation. URSA is in its ninth year hosting this event.
“Most people at UT have interests that span multiple disciplines and across majors. The symposium is a chance for everyone to see the diverse research happening on campus that they might not necessarily know about by staying within their field,” remarked Sophia Cui, sophomore in the interdisciplinary program and chair of programming for URSA.
Students are given 15 minutes to present their research and conduct a question-and-answer session. For many, the symposium was the first time presenting their research in front of an audience.
