Student Poster Competition

The IEEE MetroCon Student Poster Competition is jointly sponsored by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and Oncor Electric Delivery, LLC. The purpose of the competition is to encourage professional and technical development among engineering students. The competition includes an oral presentation and a poster which details the work being considered in the competition. The work must first be submitted in the form of a paper abstract, which must be received by the competition’s organization committee no later than October 1, 2015. Email abstracts to

The Student Poster Competition is open to IEEE Student Members who are either undergraduate or graduate students at the time of the competition. There will be separate competitions for undergraduate and graduate students. The participants may consist of a team of up to four members. Two members may present the poster at the competition and attend the convention free of charge. Remaining team members who wish to attend will need to pay the student fee for attendance ($25 per student).

Engineering work presented must be relevant to field of Electrical and Computer Engineering and preferably pertain to a topic that is within one of the tracks of the MetroCon.
