July 13-17, 2020

MAE Virtual Research Week is a week-long activity from July 13 - 17 dedicated to showcasing the research in MAE by providing current and future students, faculty, staff and alumni a chance to learn more about the work currently taking place in our department. Events will be spread out over the course of the week and will include faculty overviews of their research groups and graduate student presentations. Participants will have the chance to engage select faculty who will be presenting their lab and their research as well as some of our current graduate students who will be presenting short overviews of their research. Guests can register for any and/or all of the activities which they wish to attend. All sessions will be conducted virtually, via Zoom. Registration is required to participate. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Nick Breckenridge at breckenridge.17@osu.edu or 614-292-7163. Requests made by July 6th will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
