This video should capture the main emphasis of a specific research or scholarly activity at TU, and discuss that research in a way that is understandable and interesting to the general public.

General Information

Who: All currently enrolled TU graduate students are eligible to enter one video submission to the competition. Currently enrolled TU students may form teams of up to four members for a video submission, and no more than one member of the team may be a current TU undergraduate. Please carefully read the Research Video Competition Information and Rules prior to entering the competition.
