Ingeokring has established a prize for the best thesis (MSc, ir. or drs.) in the field of Engineering Geology submitted to a Dutch University or Institute of higher education. The prize consists of a sum of € 500 and a certificate, to be handed out at the annual symposium of the Ingeokring held every autumn.
The thesis must be a contribution to the application of earth scientific knowledge to the solution of problems in civil engineering, mining engineering or environmental engineering.
The Award Committee will pay special attention to:
- Relevance for earth sciences and engineering
- Scientific quality
- Originality of approach
- Quality of presentation
We invite the submission of theses defended in the period January 2011-June 2013. Individuals can send in their own thesis or the thesis of others. Membership of Ingeokring is not required. A digital version of the thesis in PDF format or three complete hard copies of the thesis (including figures, photographs, and annexes) have to be submitted by June 30, 2013 to the secretary of the Award Committee.
The Award committee consists of:
- Ir. Fedor Meulenkamp (Royal Boskalis Westminster nv, Papendrecht, the Netherlands)
- Dr.ir. Siefko Slob (Witteveen+Bos Raadgevende Ingenieurs B.V., Deventer, the Netherlands)
- Dr.ir. Robrecht Schmitz
