3rd Annual Graduate Exhibition Success

Focusing on the diversity of graduate student research, the 3rd annual Graduate Exhibition was a great success. One hundred twenty students in master’s and doctoral programs participated in the exhibition on March 7 and presented research or creative efforts in eight categories through poster presentations, music and visual arts.

The Graduate Exhibition places special emphasis on communicating research and creative endeavors to a general audience and offers an unusual opportunity for professional development by challenging graduate students to present their work in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields.

Eight first place winners were selected from each broad category; computer sciences and information technology, engineering, humanities, life sciences, physical and mathematical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, visual arts and music. Click here for a complete list of winners in each category.

“This experience is critical for many of these students to share and explain their research projects, some for the first time.” says Dr. Mark Wardell, Dean of the Toulouse Graduate School. “The skills they use in this venue are ones they will use in finding jobs, writing grants or collaboration opportunities. The Toulouse Graduate School, in conjunction with the Graduate Student Council, is proud to offer this experience for UNT graduate students.”

This was also the second year students from Denton High School had the opportunity to present their research next to Graduate Students. Ten high school students joined the poster presentations.

Winners of the 3rd annual Graduate Exhibition will be honored at a reception on April 28 at UNT on the Square.

Pictured at the Graduate Exhibition is College of Music faculty, Dr. Paul Dworak, who was a judge at the exhibition, and Mahdi Ahmadi, a presenter in the engineering category.
