The UNC Charlotte Undergraduate Research Conference is a university-wide showcase of research projects completed by undergraduate students of all
levels from all
colleges and departments in the university. The work presented can range from in-class projects to year-long honors theses and everything in between. The type of research varies depending on the discipline, and could include a philosophical analysis as well as hands-on data collection in a lab or in the field. Students have the choice of presenting their work in poster or oral formats. Students may present individually (oral or poster) or in groups (poster). Both are judged during the conference and general prizes are awarded by discipline following the key-note speaker.
Students have an optional opportunity to apply for an Atkins Library Undergraduate Research Award. Five awards will be given in the following categories: Arts/Architecture/Humanities, Social Sciences/Education, Physical Sciences/Engineering, Biological Sciences/Health Sciences, Math/Computer Sciences. Entries will be judged by a team of faculty members from UNC Charlotte, including faculty from the colleges and librarians from Atkins Library.
