expoSItion

Monday, March 26, 2018
1:00-3:00 pm
Michigan League Ballroom

expoSItion is an event designed to meet and learn about UMSI student innovations and skills! This annual showcase allows UMSI students to exhibit projects to employers, peers, prospective students, faculty and the University of Michigan community. Student projects are diverse, cutting edge, and focus on solving real-world information problems.

Employers attend the exposition to see students' skills in action and to aid in their recruitment efforts. As an attendee, you will be able to evaluate presentation skills of potential interns/employees, to build relationships with students, and to generate interest and awareness of their organizations. You will also be given resumes of every student expoSItion participant for continued recruitment efforts.

Award-Winning Projects

Some of the projects are developed for submission to the annual international student design competition at the Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) Conference, as well as other national conferences such as the American Library Association (ALA), and the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and others.
