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.

This annual tradition will convene graduate and undergraduate students in celebrating the academic excellence they’ve demonstrated over the past year. Students participating in SOURCE will enjoy the opportunity to showcase their outstanding research and creativity to peers, professors, friends, and family members. Because of the pandemic, the conference will be held virtually, which will actually extend our program to a much broader audience.
