  • What work qualifies?

    Because we have a rich variety of graduate programs on our campus, there are many different academic styles and traditions. Essentially, this event exists to let students’ publicly present their work. Some students will present research from their dissertation or thesis; others will present their major project; some may present a product developed during an internship; and, some will present their creative work including original poetry, short story, or composition. Group projects may also be submitted.

    • What are the rules?

      1. The work primarily must be the work of the UTC graduate students. Your professor may help you edit, review the work and supervise some of the research. However, this is student driven competition. Faculty should not function as co-authors.

      2. You release the work to be evaluated by two or more outside reviewers.

      3. All UTC research protocol must be followed.
