A team of graduates connected with the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) achieved some notable distinctions at their recent summer graduation ceremony.

The graduates achieved various accolades during their PhD or Masters programs.

All six graduates have been awarded with ISEM excellent or merit awards over the past few years. 

Wen Xian Li and Shulei Chou won the prestigious Chinese Government excellent student scholarships.
