These policies and guidelines have been developed for ASE/EM faculty members who want to print and display research posters that were not developed for our graduate recruiting or external advisory committee events.

Guidelines for posters that are being developed by graduate students for departmental events can be found here.

Printing & Hanging

The UT Sign Shop can print posters and takes UT account numbers as payment. The department will not cover the cost of posters printed for research purposes unless the posters are being developed for departmental events. The UT Sign Shop can also arrange to install the poster for you as well, but will charge a fee.

Poster Frames

If you need to have something custom framed, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s do custom framing at a reasonable cost.

General Research Poster Design Guidelines

ASE/EM Identities (Logos)

Please be sure to follow the visual guidelines when using the official ASE/EM identities.


The Cockrell School of Engineering follows The University of Texas at Austin's font recommendations.

Benton Sans/Benton Sans Condensed is the preferred primary font. GT Sectra is a secondary font. Both typefaces are available worldwide in PC and Apple formats. Arial is also acceptable for posters.


It’s okay to have a variety of colors in the posters. For suggestions on colors to use in sidebars, charts, graphs, follow UT’s official color palette here

    Texas Aerial Robotics Quadcopter
    Our Texas Aerial Robotics team practices flying this quadcopter (drone) on the roof of the WRW building. The team was established to compete in the International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC).
  • Stretchable Electronics
    Stretchable Electronics
    A researcher is handling a 1um thick semi-transparent polyimide film as a substrate for stretchable electronics inside a glove box because polyimide is sensitive to moisture during the curing process. -Mechanics of Bio-Integrated Electronics Lab (Lu Research Group)
  • RACE Satellite
    RACE Satellite
    The RACE (Radiometer Atmospherc Cubesat Experiment) satellite uses reflected radiation from the Earth to measure atmospheric water vapor. UT is partnering with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the RACE mission. -Texas Satellite Lab

  • Graphene Grown on Copper
    Graphene Grown on Copper
    This scanning electron microscope shows monolayer (lighter) and bilayer (darker) graphene grown on copper. The underlying copper grain structure and ridges within its grains can be seen. Bilayer graphene has a characteristic wrinkling pattern. -Liechti Research Group

  • Simulation of Boiling and Condensation
    Simulation of Boiling and Condensation
    Vapor bubbles are generated at discrete sites of the heated bottom surface. The vapor flows are condensed to liquid droplets on the top cooled boundary. Density isosurfaces and velocity streamlines are depicted. -ICES Computational Mechanics Group (Liu and Hughes)

    Earth's Time-Averaged Gravity Field

    This image of Earth's time-averaged gravity field shows features in the continental and oceanic crust with unprecedented detail for use in studies of ocean circulation, structure and properties of the Earth's crust, surveying, and terrestrial space navigation. -Center for Space Research

  • RadioLynx
    The "RadioLynx" is a dual-antenna, dual-frequency GNSS front-end developed in collaboration with the UT Austin Radionavigation Lab led by Dr. Todd Humphreys. It will enable robust and precise positioning for pedestrians and cyclists at a very low cost.
  • Texas Spacecraft Laboratory

    Senior Aircraft Design Team - Fall 2017
    Each semester our aircraft design seniors participate in a student fly-off where two teams compete against each other. Each team is required to build, design and fly their aircraft autonomously to perform various missions.
  • Pluto and Charon
    Pluto and Charon
    As Pluto's upper atmosphere escapes into space, a portion is attracted toward its largest moon, Charon, which captures a thin atmosphere of its own. Charon's gravity draws particles onto its leading face while focusing them into a high density (orange) region in its wake. -Computational Fluid Physics Lab (Goldstein/Varghese)
