On the 5th and 6th of March, CUPB held their sixth SPE thesis competition. Pr. Zhao Xionghu, the Dean of the Postgraduate Office, along with teachers from the Petroleum Engineering Department, were the judges.
Nine graduates and three undergraduates entered the semi-final, with eight participants going through to the final. In the final, the contestants had to deliver an English speech about their thesis, and answer questions raised by the judges. This gave them the chance to practice their English language and presenting skills.
Prizes were awarded as follows:
First place: Li Qiu and Sheng Mao
Second place: Ma Mingbo and Chen Hao Xu Xinchen
Third place: Cao Jie, Xie Quan and Yuan Jianbo
These students will have the chance to go to India to participate in the next SPE Asia-Pacific Regional Student Paper Contest.
