Texas A&M Water Day set for March 27

Texas A&M Water Day 2024 will bring a research poster competition and water lecture to campus on March 27. Poster displays and judging will be held at the Texas A&M University Memorial Student Center in the 12th Man Hall, 9 a.m. to noon, and the following Water Lecture and power award ceremony will begin at 2:30 p.m. in Rudder Tower, room 501.   

Showcasing water-related research from engineering, agriculture and Earth sciences fields, Texas A&M Water Day gives students invaluable networking and research communication experience. 

Registration is required for students submitting research posters as well as lecture attendees, and it is available at gradconnect.tamu.edu/register/waterday2024. The deadline for registration and poster abstract submission is March 18 at 11:59 p.m.  

Both undergraduate and graduate students can present posters at the event, but only graduate students are eligible for the poster competition and monetary prize, due to funding source requirements.  

To be eligible for the poster competition, students must:  

  • Be a graduate student at Texas A&M University or Texas A&M - Galveston  
  • Have at least one semester remaining in their current graduate program  
  • Be enrolled in eligible study areas, including engineering hydrology, stochastic hydrology, coastal hydrology, water quality, watershed management, hydrogeology, hydrologic techniques in water resources planning, climatology, and public policy  

The event is seeking volunteers, and students, staff and faculty can register to volunteer online

Texas A&M Water Day is hosted by the Texas A&M Water Management and Hydrological Science Program in the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Texas Water Resources Institute, which is part of Texas A&M AgriLife Research, AgriLife Extension and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M. 

The poster competition awards are funded by the W.G. Mills Memorial Fellowship in Hydrology, established to promote the development and conservation of water resources in Texas and develop leadership for tomorrow’s water resources managers.
