This course really gives me the confidence to deliver my presentation to
the public, and judge the quality of other presentation.
I thought this class was very helpful in allowing students to practice talking

The research colloquium course was a great environment that exposed us to
the most current researches in the field which helped us to increase our
knowledges. In this course, we were able to share researches with a friendly

community in an environment that trains students to be leaders in research
while also working within the boundaries of ethical scientific work.
