Community-based research, art and design creations, original compositions, scientific experiments—it's time to celebrate our students' achievements. Each spring, students from across campus showcase their best work at Student Research Day.
Students, alumni, employees, the general public—everyone is invited to this full-day event where they can speak to students about their scholarly and creative accomplishments. If you are current student or a recent graduate (within one year of graduation), you can apply to present a project or share research or creative work.
Student Research Day 2021 will be held virtually due to concerns and restrictions regarding public gatherings.

Additional opportunities to share your work
Following Student Research Day, a Book of Abstracts will be posted to the Student Research Day web page.
We encourage you to submit copies of your presented works, including papers, theses, recordings and digital copies of creative works, to MacEwan’s online research repository (RO@M).
Interested in having your work formally peer-reviewed and published? Students may also submit projects to the MacEwan University Student eJournal (MUSe), which accepts research, scholarly and creative works completed as part of the upper-level experience at MacEwan (including 3rd and 4th year students or students in their second year of a diploma program).
