Every year in April, the Catholic University of America celebrates student and faculty research with University Research Day. In 2021, there were 38 presentations and posters presented by School of Engineering students and faculty, and engineering undergraduates took first place awards for Best Undergraduate Oral Presentation and Best Undergraduate Poster Presentation, as well as the Phi Beta Kappa First Year Experience Essay Prize.
