On behalf of this year’s Steering Committee and the Center for Civic Leadership, welcome to the Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium (RURS) webpage.
We recently just concluded our 16th RURS that took place on April 12, 2017. RURS 2017 had over 250 student participants presenting over 200 unique projects and we additionally had over 100 judges from Rice and the greater Houston community come in for the event to evaluate and provide feedback to the students.
RURS is the premiere event for undergraduates across all disciplines to present their research projects and compete for recognition from academic schools at Rice. This event would not be possible without the efforts of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students from Rice and the Houston community who have graciously volunteered their time to evaluate the student presentations.
