Undergraduate Research Symposium

Student Research Showcased in Symposium at Frostburg State University

Student research and experiential learning projects will be the focus of Frostburg State University’s annual Undergraduate Research Symposium on Friday, May 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lane University Center. The symposium provides participants the opportunity to present their work to their peers and share experiences across disciplines. All three academic colleges will be represented for the first time this year.

The event is free and open to members of the public, who may come at any time during the three-hour window.

The symposium will feature the work of 248 students who were mentored by 52 members of the faculty or staff across all three colleges and 15 departments. The poster presentations, oral presentations and physical displays will represent work completed during 2018 and 2019.

Some of the wide variety of topics to be covered will include a skills assessment of regional workforce among employers and employees, a conservative treatment of a rare type II odontoid fracture, inventories of amphibians and reptiles, a presentation on ignorance in interracial relationships, community colleges vs. universities, drone construction and remote sensing applications, the history of Deep Creek Lake, revealing the geometry of spiral galaxies using fourier transforms and much more.

Students will be stationed at their research displays in the Lane Center’s Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall to explain their findings to interested individuals.

A range of more extensive oral presentations will be offered in other rooms on the first floor of the Lane Center. Guides to the research topics and a schedule of oral presentations will be available at the door.
