The Southeastern Section of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) invites both engineering and engineering technology faculty to sponsor their undergraduate students to present a poster at the annual Section Conference. This is an opportunity for you to exhibit your pedagogical successes through your students’ outstanding projects. Students may enter in the following categories:

  • First/Second Year Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
  • Junior/Senior Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
  • Individual Undergraduate Research

There is a tremendous amount of talent and creativity in the Section. You as faculty are invited to share your experiences with your colleagues, while at the same time recognizing your students and giving them the opportunity to:

  • Practice their visual, written, and oral communication skills in a professional/conference environment
  • Share their research/project work with students and faculty from other institutions

Additionally, the poster competition will:

  • Improve the visibility of student efforts,
  • Recognize excellence in student projects, and
  • Promote the sharing and exchange of ideas about team projects and undergraduate research amongst the members in the section.

ELIGIBILITY

  • Each student poster entry (Team or Individual) is required to have a faculty advisor.
  • The faculty advisor must be a registered attendee of the conference and may advise up to three poster entries.

Design Teams:

  • Undergraduate student teams from any Engineering or Engineering Technology program in the section are invited to present a poster on a team-based design project.
  • Team sizes are two or more students, with a minimum of two team members registered as student conference attendees.
  • Student teams may register in one of the following categories:
    • First/Second Year Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
    • Junior/Senior Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
  • Authors and participants in research should be academically in the division specified.
    • Mentors such as graduate students and faculty advisors are permitted, but this is supposed to showcase the team’s work at the academic level specified.

Individual Undergraduate Researchers:

  • Individual undergraduate students working on undergraduate research projects from any engineering program in the section are invited to present a poster.
    • It is important that the research presented is representative of the individual's research efforts even if it is from a project with multiple participants.
    • The intent is not for the student to present on a group project as an individual presenter, but rather to showcase their own research.

Submission Guidelines:

Poster Size: 48 x 36 inches (w x h)

Poster submission (Digital):

  • Submission for PDFs will open soon after the Abstract Submission period has ended.
