Graduate Gallery Competition

All graduate students at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering are invited to submit an image or a video that highlights their current research to the Department’s Annual Graduate Gallery Competition. This is a great opportunity for the students to showcase their on- going research and an occasion to learn about other ongoing research activities in the Department. The winners will receive cash prizes from the Department Head during a Graduate Student Ceremony. Below, please find the top entries for our annual Graduate Gallery Competition.
