Four Informatics and Computing Students Recognized for Top Honors
April 24, 2015
Congratulations go out to four Informatics and Computing students who have been selected for IUPUI’s Top 100 and Elite 50.
Sarah Zajac, a senior enrolled in the BS in Media Arts and Science program was selected as a Top 100 undergraduate student. She was selected from more than 2,100 nominated students, based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, and community engagement. All winners were recognized at the Top 100 Dinner on April 10th.
Three PhD candidates were chosen for the Elite 50 on the IUPUI campus:
- Hamed Abedtash, PhD candidate Health Informatics,
- Debaleena Chattopadhyay, PhD candidate Human-Computer Interaction
- Preethi Srinivas, PhD candidate Human-Computer Interaction
The three were chosen out of 8,100 graduate and professional students. The Elite 50 program is modeled after IUPUI’s Top 100 Outstanding Students Recognition, which honors the top undergraduate students on campus. The focus of this new program is graduate and professional students, and a top award, the Dr. Charles R. Bantz Award for Excellence, is also part of this new honors recognition.
Debaleena Chattopadhyay also received the “Best in School” for SoIC and “Top 10” of the campus honors.
