On Friday March 6, 2020 we held our in-house paper contest. We had 11 contestants, and we want to give a big round of applause to all who presented! We're giving a special shout out to Joshua Klumpenhower for competing in the Undergraduate division. He was the only one to compete in that division, and we are very proud as it's new territory for most undergrads. We encourage all of the undergrads to look into this contest and think about competing next year!
The department wants to thank SPE NMT Student Chapter for successfully organizing the 2020 student paper contest. Special thanks to Danielle Ochoa - President of the SPE Student Chapter, Dr. Hamid Rahnema - SPE Faculty advisor, Kim - department secretary, and all of the judges for helping out this outstanding event.
Undergrad Division: Joshua Klumpenhower
Graduate Division- Kien Nguyen
PhD Division- Junyu You
Congratulations to the winners, and they will be moving on to the 2020 Southwestern North America Student Paper Contest. The contest will be held on 18 April 2020 at The University of Texas at Austin in Austin, Texas, USA.
Thank you to our judges, professors, and department secretary for all of the help!
