The Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is held by fourth-year graduate students in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University. GSS is a day-long event planned to provide the opportunity for department graduate students to showcase their research and to network with industrial representatives who will be in attendance. Fourth-year graduate students deliver oral presentations on their thesis research, while third-year students present posters on their developing research projects.
