UVERS is a joint event between the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and the Graduate Engineering Student Council.  The symposium was initiated by graduate students nine years ago and has continued annually.  Each year graduate students present  research on topics ranging across disciplines at SEAS for top honors as well as cash awards.
