Student Research Day

Every Spring semester since 2005, SJSU student researchers who work on original research projects under the direction of College of Science (COS) faculty have presented their results in the COS Student Research Day. The 16th College of Science Student Research Day will be held on Friday, May 5th from 10am to 1pm in the breezeway of Duncan Hall.  

15th Annual College of Science Student Research Day

The 15th COS SRD took place on Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 11:00am to 2:00pm on the ground floor level of Duncan Hall, immediately following the groundbreaking for the Interdisciplinary Science Building. It involved 103 posters describing the research projects and results. The posters were staffed by the undergraduate and graduate students who performed the research. The projects displayed represented orginal research projects from the laboratories of COS faculty. Many of the projects are funded by federal, state or other grants, and will eventually lead to publications in scientific journals. Some of the posters had already been presented at national or international scientific conferences.

Each year, the COS Student Research Day showcases some of the broad range of research activity in the College of Science, and recognizes the opportunities that are available to our students, many of whom move into the workforce or continue on to graduate or professional schools. The research experience they gain as students proves to be invaluable in their careers in science. The student presenters are eager to describe and discuss their research projects and results! 

The campus community and public are invited to view the posters and talk to our student researchers, and the event is always free and open to the public. The information and time for the 2020 Student Research Day will be posted in spring 2020. The location is wheelchair accessible. For other accommodations, contact Dr. Roy Okuda (408-924-2525).
