Lehigh Engineering's annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, held each spring, showcases the intense academic capabilities of today’s rising Lehigh Engineers, and highlights the resources and opportunities Lehigh provides to undergraduates.

Each year, the event helps student-competitors, nominated by their departments, learn how to express the significance and complexity of their work and answer questions posed by faculty, students, and visitors.

The top finishers, judged by a panel of academic and industry researchers, win travel stipends to attend professional conferences for yet another opportunity to promote their work and practice the art of communication.


Thank you to everyone for their support in the 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium! Students from Lehigh University and Lafayette College presented their research projects during an online event on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.

Congratulations to this year's winner, Evan Savage! A Lafayette College senior studying Civil and Environmental Engineering, Evan won for his research, "Fertilizer from Wastewater: Biological Enhanced Phosphorous Removal and Steps to Commercialization."
