Honors alumnus Alfred Mejia ('15 BFA) will be the featured speaker; Alfred won top honors during the 2015 Honors Symposium for his thesis, "From Pop Art to ARTPOP." The public is invited to attend. It's a great forum to witness the spirit of the program and meet current students. See the full program for details.
Honors senior Paul Huron is the selected sole scholar from UIW to represent the university on March 28 at the Texas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol. Paul will present his thesis, "Development of a Signal Analysis Identification Program for Aircraft/Disaster Visualization by Converting Audio Signals using Fourier Transform Algorithms," in a poster presentation at the Capitol Building. His captivating speech at UIW Research Week clinched his selection. Paul's project perfectly fits the event theme, "Transforming Texas through Undergraduate Research" as you will hear in his presentation at our Honors Symposium on March 25. His original research has implications for adaptation across many industries.
