This is a formal seminar session for all the students enrolled in the Senior Project course ENPH 479. 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 ENPH 479 students will be in attendance. All other interested Engphys undergrad students, project sponsors and faculty members are invited to attend to see the progress students have made on their projects.


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



Two concurrent sessions will be held for all student groups.

NB – This is a TENTATIVE schedule, as of 2018 Jan 8th.   * Any major changes from the original schedule marked with an asterisk and bolded, and any affected sponsors and students contacted by email.
