Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium
APRIL 16, 2014
The annual Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium enables Rice undergraduate students in all disciplines to share their research and design projects with the broader Rice and Houston community.
Begun in 2002, RURS is a one-day, campus-wide showcase of the cutting-edge research accomplishments of Rice undergraduates. The event features poster presentations, oral presentations, and cash prizes determined by faculty, graduate student, and community judges. Last year 280 students representing all schools participated. The RURS Steering Committee seeks greater participation this year and is excited to host this year’s symposium in Tudor Fieldhouse!
The Committee encourages all students who are participating in independent or group research to take advantage of the opportunity to gain conference experience. Since this will be the first conference for many students, RURS holds workshops during the spring semester on abstract writing, poster design, and oral presentations.
The annual public event is put on by a student
committee in conjunction with the Office of Fellowships and Undergraduate
