Welcome to the website of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Annual Environmental Engineering and Science Symposium!

Held each Spring semester, this Symposium gives graduate students in the Environmental Engineering and Science (EES) Program an opportunity to present their current research to the community of UIUC and its neighboring Universities. This year’s theme is Mitigating the Impact of Human Activities on the Environment . This year’s Symposium will be held at the Newmark Civil and Environmental Engineering (Yeh Student Center) and Ven Te Chow Hydrosystems buildings, Urbana, Illinois, in person.

For this year’s Symposium, we are delighted to host Prof. Bruce Fouke of UIUC and Dr. Jess Brown of Carollo Engineers as the keynote speakers.
