Student Showcase

Main Campus, CMU 

This past year was the 10th Anniversary of the Student Showcase!
We were thrilled to have nearly 300 student projects and almost 550 students in the Showcase this year. On April 19th, 2019 these students shared their accomplishments with the community.

We look forward to the 2020 Student Showcase which is tentatively scheduled for April 24th, 2020.

What is the Showcase?

The Student Showcase is a yearly event that celebrates creativity, research, innovation, entrepreneurship, and the artistic performance of CMU students from all of our campuses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Who is eligible to participate in the Showcase?

CMU students who are currently working on original projects, or have completed projects since the beginning of summer 2018, are eligible to present at the showcase. Projects done independently or in collaboration with peers and/or faculty mentors will also be considered. Projects that are prepared as part of a class project are eligible as well. 

How do students apply to be in the Showcase?

During the spring semester, the Showcase application is available as an app in every student's MavZone portal. Because every project must have a faculty sponsor, a faculty member (preferably the faculty mentor for the project) must be named as a sponsor on each application. The sponsor is responsible for advising his/her students on how to design and present the projects that they are sponsoring. They also proof the abstracts before they are submitted as part of the application process.
This year's applications were due on March 1st, 2019. Next year, the application will once again be available early in the spring semester.   

The Student Showcase is a chance for students to share their talents and accomplishments with their families, friends and community.
