We17: Rapid Fire Research Presentation Competition Finalists

The Rapid Fire is a research presentation competition that takes place at the annual conference, with both undergraduate and graduate divisions. The session name comes from the short length of the talks, only 4 minutes! This format challenges finalists to present their technical work clearly and succinctly to a panel of industry and academia judges from across engineering disciplines. The top 10 finalists were selected this summer to compete at We17 in Austin. After a competitive selection process, they represent top graduate and undergraduate  research!
