Engineering and Computer Science undergraduate students held a virtual poster session during the Fall Family Weekend -- Saturday, Oct. 10 from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Undergraduate research is an important component of Gonzaga's engineering and computer science programs. Each discipline taught at Gonzaga's School of Engineering and Applied Science provided at least one project to this inaugural event, providing a platform for sharing research experiences with peers, faculty, and the greater GU community.
