Engineering Day Poster Competition

Faculty of Engineering organizes ‘Undergraduate Poster Competition’ which will be held at the first ‘METU Engineering Day’. This competition is a great opportunity for undergraduate engineering students to present their research activities as well as to meet faculty members and make new friends.


How to Sign Up?

Abstracts for poster presentation must be submitted via email engday@metu.edu.tr until the application deadline. Abstracts must be submitted in English and cannot be more than 200 words. Please indicate the competition category (undergraduate research or undergraduate design project) and whether you will bring your prototype (for the undergraduate design category) and any special needs (electricity, table etc.)


Judging and Awards

Each poster will be judged by faculty members. The first author (undergraduate student) must be present at their poster during judging. Judging will be based on Visual Clarity, Oral Presentation and Scientific Contributions. Winners will be selected in two categories:

  1. Undergraduate Research
  2. Undergraduate Design Project

Best 3 posters from each of the two categories will be awarded.


Poster Competition Rules

The poster competition is exclusively for undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in the engineering programs at METU.  Posters should be prepared in A0 standard size dimensions (841x1189 mm).

Tables and electric connections will be provided (please indicate the need in your email). Winners will be selected in two categories:


UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH:

The submissions under this criteria involve scientific research conducted by an undergraduate student. Teams should include at least 1 undergraduate student (presenting first author) and may also include graduate students and/or faculty members. The first author must be presenting at the engineering day. Awards in ‘Undergraduate Research’ category will be presented to the first author of the poster.
