Annual Research Symposia

Each August since 2016, graduate students conducting research in the field of Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University have come together with faculty, peers, alumni, and industry representatives to showcase current research and exciting advances in the field.

This annual full-day celebration of our graduate students and their research is planned and organized by graduate students and MSE staff, and is fully supported by industry sponsors and the department of Materials Science and Engineering. See the list to the left for past and future symposia information.

Industry representatives or alumni interested in attending and/or financially sponsoring the upcoming symposium can contact Bridget Richardson at
