Students in grades 9-12, winners of local and school-sponsored science fairs worldwide, are selected each year to take part in the competition organised annually in the USA at which some 75 countries are represented.

Sandu’s research project focusing on “A Novel Approach to Call Quality Assessment Using Deep Neural Networks” impressed the judges, earning him second place in the “Robot and Intelligent Machines” category.

Intel ISEF was created to inspire and engage young talent from the STEM generation, and we are extremely proud to see an ORT student excelling at such a high-profile event.
