Welcome to the abstract collection for the 2013 Engineering Student Research Symposium.  For over a decade, Bucknell University engineering students and students who have done research with engineering faculty have presented their work to College alumni and friends at Homecoming.  We are pleased this year to present the abstract collection in online form, enabling students to share their work in a more engaging and dynamic manner.  We hope you enjoy the breadth and depth of the work that our students undertake.
