Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium

Summer Research Symposium

The Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium is hosted annually by interdisciplinary research programs at the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary's College. Students participating in summer research are generally from Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College, and other institutions across the United States and abroad. 

2023 Symposium

The 2023 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held Wednesday, July 26, from 10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Jordan Hall of Science, Galleria. Two, hour-long poster sessions will showcase cutting-edge research across various disciplines and the exceptional work performed by young scholars during their summer research experience. All members of the Notre Dame community and general public are welcome to attend. Please SAVE THE DATE and join us for this unique opportunity to meet some amazing researchers and learn about their incredible research topics in the arts, business, engineering, and science programs at Notre Dame and Saint Mary's.  

New this year, a select group of students will participate in a 3MT Competition immediately following the symposium to represent their research program and compete for awards. Students will be judged on how well they articulate their research topic and present a clear and logical sequence of objectives, results and impact, while translating the technical and scientific jargon into meaningful terminology appropriate for non-specialists.   

2022 Symposium

The 2022 Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium was held Wednesday, July 20, from 9:30-11:45 a.m. in the Jordan Hall of Science, Galleria. Two, hour-long poster sessions showcased fifty-one student projects from ten different programs covering a broad range of topics in the areas of engineering (26), science (14), the humanities (8), business (2), and global affairs (1). To learn more about these research projects, please view the 2022 Abstract Book and Photo Album.
