Stepping Forward 

Another year of changes and uncertain times. Despite this, the Northwestern Polytechnic community is still focused on diverse and innovative research. Northwestern Polytechnic has a wealth of researchers who pursue academic and applied research to support innovative ideas and techniques in everything from music to power engineering. 

Stepping forward into research is all about taking the first steps towards your research career. It is about trying new things, experimenting with methods, and being brave with your work. This conference might be the first time you showcase your work outside of the classroom and we are excited to be a part of that important first step. 

The new researchers of Northwestern Polytechnic are what inspired us to make this year’s conference theme “Stepping Forward.” As we move forward with our new designation as a polytechnic, we are excited to see all the ways in which the Northwestern Polytechnic community steps up and steps into more innovative and diverse research. Submit your work to the Student Research Conference and share your first step into research with the Northwestern Polytechnic community.
