Lehigh Engineering's annual David and Lorraine Freed 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.

After two years, this year's symposium is back in person! This year's event returns to Lehigh's STEPS Building on Wednesday, April 6, 2022. See this year's competitors from Lehigh University and Lafayette College below, and return here after the competition to see who won this year's competition.
