New York Tech is doing its part in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In an abundance of caution, we have canceled this event.

The Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) is a student-centered platform for New York Institute of Technology students to showcase their academic excellence.

SOURCE is a forum for undergraduate and graduate students from all campuses to present academic research projects and creative work in the arts, humanities, engineering, architecture, science, and medicine to the New York Tech community. Many students who've presented at SOURCE have gone on to present their research or creative work at national and international conferences, where they have received official recognition for their work.

Keynote Speaker: Sonia M. Kreidenweis, Ph.D.
