Poster Printing

Poster Printing Services

The poster printing facility is operated by the College of Engineering's Technical Support Services (TSS) group.  All posters are to be submitted electronically via this website (See Below).

Poster printing is available free of charge for College of Engineering (COE) faculty, staff and students for the following approved purposes:

  • Internal and external research-related events (open-houses, symposia, conferences, etc.)
  • COE-REU symposia
  • Other selected activities that are research-oriented
  • COE student societies events (limited to one or two posters per event)
  • Senior capstone design course special events
  • Printing specifically related to general coursework is not allowed through the free college service.

When a poster is submitted for printing, a faculty contact name must be provided.

Printing is available in widths of 24 inches, 36 inches or 42 inches and variable length.

Finished posters will be available for pick-up outside ENB 344B.
