What is SRC?

The Student Research Conference (SRC) is an annual event sponsored by the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (CPMS) that gives both graduate and undergraduate students the valuable opportunity to present their research and receive constructive criticism in a setting that simulates a professional conference. Most presentations last 12 minutes, although a 3-minute format is beginning to be used also.

Students who have participated in past conferences cite the SRC as valuable experience that augmented their BYU education and helped to better prepare them for graduate school and the professional sphere. Over 400 students presented their research at the 2014 SRC. Following the presentation sessions, recruiters and our corporate sponsors have the opportunity to meet with students to discuss career opportunities. SRC gives recruiters the ability to easily find the dedicated students in specific fields that their companies need.
