We hope to bring together the different Faculties to share the different research projects that are being done by undergraduate researchers. 

We welcome posters from the Faculty of Science, Health Science, Applied Sciences, and Environment. *this includes all of their respective departments that fall within these faculties.

Abstracts submission deadline: noon on FRIDAY September 15th 2017. After presenters submit their Abstract, a detailed schedule for the poster competition day, as well as a judging rubric will be emailed to presenters individually.

The idea for an all-encompassing Science Undergraduate Research Journal came about at the end of the Fall 2014 semester, coinciding perfectly with the inception of the Science Undergraduate Society (SUS), which now provides faculty level representation of science students’ interests at SFU. Since then, one of SUS’ main objectives has been the creation of such a journal, now dubbed SFU SURJ. This student journal will be comprised of an annual physical and digitally circulated journal accompanied by this website serving as a platform for more informal science news, interests articles, and impressive class papers.

Our overarching goal is simple. Promote undergraduate research by providing young scientists exposure and recognition for their work while undergoing a peer review process. Ultimately, we hope to foster a community of undergraduates who value research while engaging all students in science communication and education. SFU SURJ is meant to act as an educational tool for undergraduate authors and undergraduate editors who wish to gain some first hand experience in the knowledge making process that is scientific research.
