The Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering’s (CCEE) Graduate Student Council hosts its Sixth Annual CCEE Graduate Student Research Showcase and Poster Competition on Nov. 30.

The event takes place in Howe Hall Atrium on Iowa State University’s (ISU) campus from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This year, CCEE’s Graduate Student Council accepted nearly 70 abstracts from students for the showcase.

Georges Bou-Saab is the president of the council. With experts ranging from faculty judges to industry engineers and government agency representatives, Bou-Saab says participants will gain excellent feedback on their research.

“Students, faculty and guests will have the opportunity to learn about the interdisciplinary research projects conducted in the CCEE Department at Iowa State University,” he said. “The poster competition provides a chance for students to experience a conference-like setting and practice their presentation skills.”

Submissions are divided into five different categories: construction engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical and geotechnical materials engineering, structural engineering, and transportation engineering. The council has also added a new category of Exhibition Showcase. The new category is aimed at undergraduate students who are involved in research and will provide undergraduates with the opportunity to experience a professional conference environment.
