B-PHOT's Sidney Goossens on the longlist for the Flemish Dissertation Award

November 6, 2015 at 15:05

Sidney Goossens has just started his PhD research on optical fiber based sensors for structural health monitoring of composite materials at B-PHOT. His MSc dissertation entitled 'Dynamic strain analysis with micro-structured fiber optic strain sensors embedded in structural components' has been selected for the longlist of the 'Vlaamse Scriptieprijs 2015 '.

This is the Flemish Dissertation Award , which brings dissertations to the attention of newspapers, magazines and other media. Entered dissertations will also be included in the Dissertation Bank, which can help students secure their future career.

In 2015, 641 students entered the competition. Ten dissertations were selected for the longlist. We are proud that Sidney's work is one of those. The shortlist and the composition of the final jury will be announced on Friday 4 December. The winner will receive an award of 2.500 euros. He/she will be announced during the award session on 17 December in Amuz in Antwerp.
