Lab Expo is designed to be similar to a career fair, except that the representatives tabling at the event range from undergraduate to graduate students and professors from labs on campus. It provides undergraduate students a chance to not only see some of the research taking place across campus, but also get involved by joining a laboratory or learning more about on­going projects. It acts as a stepping stone into the world of both industrial and academic research!
