CSE held its nineteenth annual CSE Graduate Student Honors Competition on November 9, 2022. The competition recognizes top research done by PhD students at CSE and is the culmination of a process that narrows a field of entrants to a handful of finalists, each of whom gives a summary presentation on an area of their research.

The 2022 Honors Competition was sponsored by industry partner Aptiv, a global technology company that develops safer, greener, and more connected solutions which enable the future of mobility.

CSE faculty and a representative from Aptiv ranked the finalists’ presentations.
