Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Symposium (ISE)

In person April 19th, 2023

(at the Whittemore Center Arena)

Submission Deadline April 17th

(Abstract required)

In our 20th year, ISE celebrates the scholarly achievements and research of hundreds of undergraduates. Each year, students present their research through posters, demonstrations, and oral presentations (and have an opportunity to interact with their peers and gain professional experience presenting their research). In a continued effort to provide access to student research, digital copies of these presentations are made available and archived in this online gallery. Presentations represent a multitude of disciplines, many interdisciplinary, including earth, environmental, biological, computer and physical sciences, civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics and statistics, physics, and chemistry. We hope you enjoy exploring the projects showcasing the hard work of our students.

The Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Symposium has grown to become one of the marquee events in the UNH Undergraduate Research Conference. Bringing the URC ISE to fruition is the result of a collaborative effort of many UNH faculty and staff members as well as members of industry and alumni who serve as judges and volunteers. Thank you to those individuals, campus departments and companies for making the URC ISE a success.
