UT's Student SIAM Chapter "Best Graduate Organization"

Congratulations to UT's Student SIAM Chapter, housed at the Oden Institute, chosen as the "Best Graduate Organization" at an event on campus. UT's 'Evening of The Stars' is an annual awards ceremony that honors student organizations.

The Oden Institute-led Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematicians (SIAM) Chapter at UT Austin were nominated in the Swing Out Awards category honoring "outstanding student organizations and the students who drive them, for their commitment, leadership, and excellence at The University of Texas at Austin."

The UT Austin Student SIAM Chapter won the award for Best Professional Organization. This honor is given to an organization that encourages networking with professionals in the members' field and offers opportunities that will contribute to the members' success after graduation. This organization teaches members useful skills that will translate well into a professional career.

"This award would not have been possible without our faculty advisors, Drs. Arbogast and Dawson, all of the students who have participated in our events, and most importantly, the Oden Institute community, which ardently supported us in realizing our vision for SIAM, despite the pandemic. This award is a testament to what our collective efforts can achieve," said Mohammad Afzal Shadab, President of UT's SIAM Student Chapter.
