ASEE Southeastern Section 2008
Student Poster Session

The Southeastern Section of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) has solicited extended abstracts from undergraduate students to present in a poster session at this year’s conference.  The students will be entered in one of the following categories:

  • Freshman/Sophomore Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
  • Junior/Senior Engineering and/or Engineering Technology Design Teams
  • Undergraduate Research

The following section contains the extended abstracts from this year’s student participants.  During a morning judging section, they will be evaluated on their abstract, poster, and communication skills.  In the afternoon, the Research Division encourages all conference attendees to stop by and learn from students about the wonderful projects going on throughout the section.
