838C Student Seminar

In 1990, a seminar was initiated for CNAM (then CSR) graduate students in order to present their research to the other students, postdocs, and faculty in the Center. In this seminar, students submit formalized feedback to each weekly presenter, providing informative information about presentation style, research content and tips for improvement. At the end of each term, a cash prize award is given for the best student presentations based on class feedback scores. Previous winners are listed below:
