BOSTON– Mansi Jain, a software engineering student and data analytics enthusiast at the Northeastern University, won two awards at RISE:2016, the university’s Research, Innovation, and Scholarship Expo, according to News at Northeastern.

Industry leaders judged some 400 projects, which detailed the work of more than 900 North­eastern stu­dents and fac­ulty. The judges sub­mitted their rat­ings and the top award win­ners were rec­og­nized at an after­noon recep­tion in East Village, according to the News.

We are very proud of you,” Pres­i­dent Joseph E. Aoun said in addressing the award recip­i­ents as quoted by the News. “I was talking to some of the judges and they were men­tioning the pas­sion. Some were talking about the bigger ideas that they saw.”
