A longstanding tradition of CMU Energy Week, the CMU Energy Week Poster Competition is calling for posters that showcase innovative work of CMU’s student and post-doctoral researchers. This competition allows all students from undergraduates up to postdoctoral researchers to network with peers, faculty, and energy leaders while also sharing their cutting-edge research with attendees. Abstracts were due on February 27, 11:59 pm ET.

The participants will give a 5-minute flash presentation during CMU Energy Week 2023, where students will have the opportunity to present on their poster followed up by a Question & Answer period and a final award ceremony. This event will take place March 22 from 11:45 - 12:30 pm, with winners being announced on the main stage approximately at 4:00 - 4:15 pm. Posters can feature any topic related to energy, and we encourage participants from all colleges and disciplines.

Over $2,500 in total prizes will be awarded for the most compelling posters:

  • First Place ($1000, Feature in Scott Institute’s April Newsletter, display of poster in Scott Hall at CMU)
  • Second Place ($750)
  • Third Place ($500)
  • Most Innovative Research Idea ($500)
