Annual First-Year Engineering Conference

Each year as part of ENGR0012 and ENGR0716, the entire First-Year Engineering class at the University of Pittsburgh participates in a professional-style conference. Each student, as part of a team, prepares a conference research paper and presents their paper to their peers, alumni, family and faculty. This paper is the completion of a year-long writing project.

2019 will be the nineteenth year of the conference, and the entire School of Engineering is looking forward to seeing the outstanding work of this year's students. We highly encourage every mom and dad to come join their daughter/son on the day of the conference to see the transformation that their child has made in just one year under the direction of the Freshman Engineering Faculty and Staff. You are also encouraged to join all the faculty and students for a free lunch, provided by The Heinz Endowments.
