CPIA Quarterly Member Meetings

Annual Meeting

The fall quarterly meeting each year has a unique agenda where we focus on the photonics research being performed in our Colorado Universities.  It also includes the annual Student Poster Contest where grad students present their research to judges from local companies.  In an effort to identify and reward communication skills and the ability to sell an idea, students are judged on their ability to describe their project to someone outside their specific field and convince them of the need for their work.
