College hosts Student Research Symposium

University of Detroit Mercy’s College of Engineering & Science hosted its first Undergraduate and Graduate Research Symposium on Nov. 1, 2013 in the Engineering Building High Bay. The event showcased student research in the College and raised greater awareness of the engineering and science fields to Detroit area high school students. The event was attended by more than 150 visiting high school students, more than 100 E&S students presenting 60 research posters, and more than 100 guests and alumni.

Research Symposium

“It was a spectacular success in which we celebrated the diversity of research and design work done in our College, established and built relationships with partner high schools, and raised the awareness level of our College with a large number of talented prospective students and our alumni,” said E&S Dean Gary Kuleck. “I firmly believe that we can make this event a cornerstone of our College’s outreach to the community.”

Following the research showcase, Rick Foster, professor of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the Endowed Chair in Food, Society and Sustainability from Michigan State University, spoke on “Vision the Future: Metro Food, Water and Energy Systems and the Greening of Detroit.” He is also the director of FoodPlus-Detroit, an MSU food initiative working in the Detroit area. His interests lie in helping to bring integrative sustainability solutions to long-term problems impacting the social, economic and environmental systems affecting Michigan communities.
