Students and faculty members needing to create informational posters for conferences, research fairs, and senior design presentations may find links to download the appropriate templates below.  Guidelines for usage are included above each download link.  Note that any poster whose smaller dimension is greater than 36″ cannot be printed in the College of Engineering’s wide-format printer.  Posters exceeding this maximum width must be printed through an outside firm like Staples or a reprographic company and will incur additional cost.

 

Conference Research

This template deviates from the standard Valpo color palate to include a “prestige gold” color in lieu of Valpo Gold.  It is IMC-approved for use at academic conferences. Follow the guidelines below when adding content to this template.

  • The default size of 42″x36″ can be modified to meet individual conference requirements
  • Do not modify the font, color, or size of the text in the header
  • The scale and placement of the College of Engineering logo in the footer may not be changed
  • Do not modify the scale of the header or footer
  • Placement of logos in the header is not allowed
  • The addition of logos in the footer is permissible with guidance from a faculty member, since certain design requirements must be met

Research Fairs

Students participating in the Celebration of Undergraduate Research and other research fairs may create and print an informational poster to be displayed at their presentation. In some cases, posters used for research fairs are framed outside a corresponding laboratory space in the Gellersen Center for Engineering and Mathematics. In those cases, students should inquire with their faculty advisor about the appropriate dimensions to use before their poster is printed. Follow the guidelines below when adding content to this template.

  • The default size of 42″x36″ can be modified to meet individual conference requirements
  • Do not modify the font, color, or size of the text in the header
  • The scale and placement of the College of Engineering logo in the footer may not be changed
  • Do not modify the scale of the header or footer
  • Placement of logos in the header is not allowed
  • The addition of logos in the footer is permissible with guidance from a faculty member, since certain design requirements must be met

Senior Design

Each May the College of Engineering hosts the Senior Design Exposition, at which students showcase their completed senior design projects. Posters detailing the design process and features are presented at the Design Expo. Students should download and work from the template below.

  • The default size of 24″x36″ may not be modified under any circumstances, as the posters need to fit into existing frames in the hallways of Gellersen Center
  • Do not modify the font, color, or size of the text in the header
  • The scale and placement of the College of Engineering logo in the footer may not be changed
  • Do not modify the scale of the header or footer
  • Placement of logos in the header is not allowed
  • The addition of logos in the footer is only permissible if outside sponsorship is  with guidance from a faculty member (adding logos is not permitted unless a project involves funding from an outside company)
