Student Awards

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 Euro and a certificate, to be handed out every two years at the annual symposium being held by the Ingeokring 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 from July 2017 onwards. 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 to the secretary of the Award Committee before 30-06-2019.

The Award committee consists of:

  • Dr. ir. Anne-Catherine Dieudonné (Delft University of Technology), chair
  • Dr. ir. Hans Roest
  • Dr. Ir. Ahmed Elkadi (Deltares)
