Finish in Five competition fosters strong presentation skills
The Council of Engineering Graduate Students recently hosted the 2020 Finish in Five grand finale. Billur Kazaz, graduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was awarded the top prize of $500 for her presentation titled “Deep learning-based aerial stormwater inspections.” Vinita Shinde, chemical engineering graduate student, and Jacob Larson, graduate student in mechanical engineering, were awarded second and third prize, respectively.
The event, which in previous years was limited to 10 participants, was redesigned to abide by coronavirus restrictions. The reinvented format took place in two stages and expanded participation six-fold.
