All RISE participants will receive a certificate, honoring their hard work and efforts from the semester. We are also pleased to hold three competitions for the Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Symposium: Best Poster, Best Session, and Best Paper.
Best Poster Award
All RISE ME 290 and ME 390 students will be automatically entered to compete for the Best Poster Award. The best poster will be judged by faculty based upon the quality of project work, the poster, and the presentation of the work.
Best Session Award
All RISE ME 490 students that present at the ME Undergraduate Symposium will be automatically entered to compete for the Best Session Award. Judges will attend the presentations and will select the best of each session based upon the quality of the presentation and the project work.
Best Paper Award
The top ME Undergraduate Symposium award is the Best Paper Award. The judges will review the final papers from the winners of the Best Session Award to select the best overall project based upon the quality of project work and the presentation in both oral and written forms.
The winner of the Best Paper Award will be honored with a certificate and monetary award.
