Thesis Poster Competition

PES Boston in partnership with PES Day Global 2021 is inviting all Region 1 students and recent graduates to submit their Project/Thesis Posters on topics related to Power & Energy. Students are encouraged to submit a 200-500 word abstract along with their poster. Registration is open to all Undergraduate (Bachelors) and Graduate (Masters, PhD) students attending schools within Region 1 territory (MA, RI, NH, VT, ME, CT, NJ, NY).

Posters will be scored based on a pre-determined scoring system from a carefully selected panel of judges from industry and academia located in Region 1. Two winning posters will be awarded the “PES Day 2021 Best Poster Award” and invited to present in front of a live audience at the upcoming PES Boston Technical Meeting on April 27th, 2021. These awards will each include the award certificate along with a $200 gift card. All other posters will be briefly introduced during this session as well. This event will provide an excellent platform for students and recent graduates to showcase their work to industry professionals and possibly prospective employers in the Region 1 area and beyond. PES Boston Professional Chapter is one of the largest and most active chapters in US and the world, having been recently recognized three times as the IEEE PES Outstanding Chapter Award (Large Chapter Category) worldwide.
