Student works on a project for the Indiana State Museum

The Rose Show

Our students are doing some really cool things! From capstone design projects for real-world clients to competition team innovations and from freshman design studio creations to senior thesis projects. The Rose Show is your chance to meet our students and see their work, ask questions and make connections.

Have you seen some of the amazing work our students are doing? They're taking what they learn in the classroom and using it to tackle all sorts of challenges. That's what engineers, scientists and mathematicians do, after all. But our students start doing it early--as early as their very first quarter--because we know that's how they become great problem solvers. 

For many years, Rose-Hulman (and Rose Poly before it) hosted an annual event called The Rose Show, to showcase to the public the innovative and interesting things students were doing on campus. We brought it back--with a modern twist. Along with inviting the general public, The Rose Show will have special opportunities for companies, professionals and alumni to interact with our students, provide feedback and make connections.

Come check out the cool things our students are doing—from design projects for real-world clients to cutting-edge research.

The 2021 Rose Show is set for 12-2 p.m. EST, May 5, 2021.

We’re looking for judges!

Our faculty will judge the technical aspect of each project, but we need your help to evaluate the students’ presentation skills. Lend your expertise as you help evaluate nearly 100 student design and thesis projects from all disciplines.

Awards will be given by the judging panels and all attendees can vote for the crowd favorite.
