This is a formal seminar session for all the students enrolled in the Senior Project course APSC479. Each student will discuss briefly is or her involvement in a 4-month project that started early in September.

The purpose of the seminar session is to give the students experience in public speaking about a technical subject, to inform the project sponsors of the progress made by each student group and to make each sponsor aware of the diversity of projects undertaken by our undergraduate students.

All APSC 479 students will be in attendance. All other interested Engphys undergrad students, project sponsors and faculty members,

All attendees not in APSC 479 please RSVP for the event here.

Preliminary Schedule:

Two concurrent sessions will be held for all student groups.
