Submitting a Technical Report

UTCS undergraduate honors and graduate students and faculty may post approved technical papers which are available for on-line viewing.

Attention: Undergraduate honors thesis technical reports require students to complete the FERPA form and submit it to the Undergraduate Advising Office *before* posting the technical report.
