Student Research Symposium


The 2020 NMT Student Research Symposium will be held online.
More details to come, happy researching!


New Mexico Tech's Student Research Symposium (SRS) is an event for students from NMT and New Mexico's Community Colleges to present their projects and research. It's an opportunity to practice presentation skills, create and polish your research presentation format (posters, slides, handouts, etc.), and learn what your peers and fellow students are working on. Evaluators and reviewers will provide you with feedback on your presentations: what points you excelled at, how you might be able to strengthen your presentations, how to make it more accessible and understandable to the lay-person, or how to jazz it up for a professional conference. The SRS is a learning opportunity for you to practice presenting your research and get valuable feedback on how to improve upon it.

There are three categories where students can present (choose one or multiple*):

*Community College presenters are restricted to poster presentations at this time.

If you plan to participate in the Oral Presentation Dinner or Poster Presentations, a 250-word abstract is required.

Communicate to Educate

Communicate to Educate means to effectively communicate your project or research to educate those you are presenting to. This is the primary focus of the Student Research Symposium.

The SRS is an annual event where students present their research to the communities of NMT and Socorro, as well as the larger STEM community. Students at all levels, from freshman to graduates, have the opportunity to participate in research and the SRS provides a forum to share the exciting projects they've been working on!
