The School of Science Student Research Conference highlights the results of applied research, independent study, and thesis projects conducted by students in the departments of biology; chemistry and physics; computer science and software engineering; and mathematics. The conference, now a part of the university-wide annual Scholarship Week, gives students the opportunity to present their work via poster presentations to peers, faculty, friends, and family.
The authors reception recognizes Monmouth University book and article authors and library research awards to a graduate and undergraduate student. A light lunch buffet will be provided.
