Engineering and Computer Science Graduate Poster Competition

This annual research competition among the graduate students of the Faculty of Engineering, not only demonstrates the cutting-edge research that the Faculty’s graduate students are conducting, it also gives Ottawa’s industry and community a sneak preview of the next generation of designers, innovators, and entrepreneurs.

During the event, you can:

  • Discover our students’ numerous research projects,
  • Network with graduate students, professors and their research teams, alumni and professionals from the National Capital Region,
  • Receive information on graduate studies.
