UMD Hosts 24th Annual Undergraduate Research & Artistic Showcase

Some students will have their work published in Civil Engineering's Hydraulics Engineering Magazine.

DULUTH, Minn. – After months and long hours of research more than 40 University of Minnesota of  Duluth students had their projects on display.

It’s all a part of the 24th Annual Undergraduate Research & Artistic Showcase.

Students work alongside a faculty member and conduct research outside of their regular courses.

The showcase featured topics ranging from long-term effects to being a military brat to the bedload formulas for the Minnesota River.

“Why this is important is because, if bedload is too high it can cause fill-ins like it’s happening on Lake Pepin right now,” said Student Luke Ulstad-Lisiecki. “If it’s too low, it could create scour on bridges, which could lead to bridge failure.”

Students involved in the program earn a $1,500 scholarship and $300 for expenses while working on a project.

Students with the most people attending their oral presentation and two students with the most people viewing their poster presentation will receive gift certificates to the UMD Book Store.
