residents in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand.
The 2014 President’s IQP Award finalists have been selected and the university will celebrate the project team finalists at the President’s IQP Award Ceremony on Friday, Jan. 30.
The President’s IQP Awards recognize the student teams whose conception, performance and presentation of their Interactive Qualifying Project has been judged outstanding in focusing on the relationships among science, technology, and the needs of society. To be considered for an award, the project must be superior in conception, execution, and presentation. There are no pre-determined categories for the awards, but the award recognizes the qualities for which the project excels. Each award consists of a Certificate of Merit.
The five teams will make their final presentations in Rubin Campus Center Odeum. The program will begin at 1:30 p.m. with opening remarks.
