The Telfer School’s “research café” held last week was a terrific success! This annual event brought together students in Telfer School graduate programs and joint Telfer-Engineering and Computer Science graduate programs. The participants had the opportunity to discuss their research through presentations and networking with academic colleagues and participants from industry and the public sector. Many of these students had won awards for excellence in the uOttawa’s engineering graduate poster competition, held in April 2014.
The event highlighted the innovative research projects students are undertaking in the School’s three strategic areas of excellence: innovation and entrepreneurship, health systems management and analytics and performance.
This event was organized by the IBM Centre for Business Analytics and Performance and was hosted by Professor Greg Richards, Director. Richards is also professor of performance management and Director of the MBA Program.
