New Mexico Tech (NMT) has opened up poster session registration to all New Mexico Community & Junior College students to participate in the 9th Annual Student Research Symposium (SRS) on April 14 & 15, 2020. We invite students to present in one of four poster sessions (student's preference on which session time), and to attend our other SRS events such as our 3-minute Speech Competitions and the Oral Presentation Dinner. 

All presenters will have a valuable opportunity to enhance their presentation skills, as well as receive constructive feedback on their research/project and poster presentation. They'll also learn about other researchers in their field, and other fields as well. Networking and meeting like minded individuals is another benefit of the symposium participation.

In effort to aid participation for all community and junior college students, NMT will provide mileage costs for one vehicle from your location (carpooling encouraged), as well as meals and lodging for all presenters and a faculty advisor from your college. You will be staying on the beautiful New Mexico Tech campus and eating at our campus cafeteria. There are no fees for attendance or to participate in the poster sessions.

NMT is a wonderful college that promotes and sponsors STEM related projects and research. If you haven't visited Tech in the past, we are excited to share our campus and educational opportunities with you. If you are interested in a STEM education beyond your community college, we would love for you to join us. To help support your educational pursuits, NMT is able to give all student presenters a way to continue your college experience through these valuable offers:

  • if you apply to NMT, your application fee will be waived
  • if you attend NMT, you will receive a $1000 scholarship to advance your studies

Thanks to the efforts of the Office of Student Life, the Office for Student Learning, Skeen Library, and the NMT Student Government Association, this year's symposium promises to be a grand event. Please come and share your projects and research with us. We'd love to see what you're working on!
