URCAD 2017 LogoThe Twenty-first Annual
Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day
April 26, 2017

Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day (URCAD) features research, scholarship, and creative work carried out by UMBC undergraduates. Student work is shared through oral presentations, posters, artistic exhibits and performances, and film.

This campus celebration of achievement affirms UMBC’s commitment to the twin goals of research and a distinctive undergraduate experience.

All current undergraduates who have conducted research, scholarship or creative work in the last year may apply to present their results at URCAD. Mentors, fellow students, friends, family members, high school teachers and students, graduate school recruiters, and the general public are invited to attend.


“Start Strong, Finish Stronger

“Begin your intellectual life at UMBC with a First-Year Experience; a learning environment rich in discussion and analysis. These wonderful opportunities are designed for students new to UMBC as freshmen or transfer students. I not only want you to start strong, but to finish stronger!”
