What is the SRS?

Communicate to Educate is the focus of the NMT Student Research Symposium (SRS). The SRS is an annual event where NMT students present their research to NMT, Socorro, and the larger STEM community. Students at all levels, from freshmen to graduate, have the opportunity to participate in research; the SRS provides a forum to share the exciting projects they've been working on!

Students can present 3 ways:

  • Oral Presentation
    • 12 minute slide presentation followed by Q&A 
  • Poster Presentation
    • Poster exhibit where presenters stand by their poster and interact with the audience
  • 3-Minute Presentation
    • 1 slide, 3 minute talk - ideal for students just starting their research

The Student Research Symposium is an opportunity for you to: 

  • Showcase your knowledge and skills by giving a presentation or displaying a poster to student and professional researchers and engineers 
  • Communicate your research or design to people outside your field
  • See what your peers are doing and get ideas for what might be your future research might be!


We hope to see you there. While presentations are by NMT students, attendance is open to anyone. Feel free to invite family and friends to attend!
