EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

 
The Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA) is an annual event that showcases research and creative activities by currently enrolled undergraduate students in collaboration with a University of Tennessee, Knoxville or UTIA faculty mentor. Entries can be individual or group projects and are judged by a panel of UT faculty members, community professionals, and industry partners. There is an additional category for individual and group projects conducted as part of a classroom assignment, including capstone projects.

The Office of Undergraduate Research coordinates this unique competition to encourage, support, and reward undergraduate participation in the campus research enterprise and in the classroom learning of research methodologies. An added value is the development of faculty mentoring relationships.

Learn more about EURēCA at eureca.utk.edu.
