Each year, OU’s Graduate College provides students the opportunity to present their current research to gain experience and to share with the OU community their excellence scholarship skills through participation in Graduate Student Research and Creativity Day (SRCD). This year’s event was held on Friday, February 24 in the Molly Shi Boren Ballroom of the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
Students were allowed to present their research through the use of portfolios, posters, slide and/or video or orally in the following categories: Education/Fine Arts/Humanities, Oral Presentation, Engineering, Science, Social Science and Video Presentation. With over sixty-five entrants, Graduate College declared SRCD 2017 a huge success.
Five MPGE graduate students showcased their research during the event, and two were awarded 2nd place for their presentations. Congratulations to Tito Henao, 2nd Place, Science and Felipe Perez, 2nd Place, Engineering.
