Turbo Expo Student Poster Session

One major event organized by the SAC is the Student Poster Competition. Presenting a poster is an excellent opportunity to display research outside of a paper while still contributing to the continuing advancements in the turbomachinery community. To be eligible to present a poster, the presenting author must have completed the research presented on the poster while seeking a degree at a university at an undergraduate (Bachelor's) or graduate level (Master's or PhD). Submit your research and contribute to the continuing conversation on advancements in gas and wind turbine technology. Abstracts are due January 31, 2020 to the webtool located on the Turbo Expo Virtual Event. Be sure to submit the abstract to Track 28 Student Poster.
