The Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) celebrates the contributions of undergraduate scholarly inquiry/research at UBC. It provides an opportunity for students from across campus to present a project they have been working on while engaging in scholarly debate amongst each other.

 

Participation in the conference is on a voluntary basis, with students having the choice of giving either an oral, poster or visual arts/performance presentation of their work. Presentations are judged by graduate students, and prizes are awarded for the top oral, poster and visual arts/performance presentations at a closing celebratory reception.

 

The next MURC conference is happening at UBC on March 16, 2019 at 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM.

 

If you’re interested in presenting at MURC 2019, visit the MURC site for more details.

Celebrate innovative undergraduate research at UBC

It is touted as the biggest undergraduate research conference in British Columbia. The Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) 2014 is happening this Saturday (March 22, 2014). This annual event highlights current UBC undergraduate researchers and their work while ‘keynote speakers share their exceptional and exciting research experiences’.

Back in 2012, three UBC MURC 2012 award winners – Alvin Ip (UBC Vancouver), Ben MacLeod (UBC Vancouver) and Ryan Trenholm (UBC Okanagan) – went abroad to represent UBC at the international 8th Universitas21 Undergraduate Research Conference (July 1 – 5, 2012) at the Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. Find some of the MURC 2012 presentations in cIRcle at: https://circle.ubc.ca/handle/2429/42446.
