The second annual MSc ER Symposium will be held on Monday, October 2nd, 2017 at Simon Fraser University. Students from the 2018 cohort will showcase the progress of their Applied Research Projects (ARP). Following a series of brief presentations, break-out groups will provide attendees the opportunity to learn more about each project and provide valuable feedback to students as they begin drafting their ARP. This event is a wonderful opportunity to network with project sponsors, SFU and BCIT faculty and staff, current students, and alumni.
