Fritz Studer Award for outstanding doctoral thesis

Fritz Studer AG, a Körber Group company, awarded a research prize within the framework of last week’s AMB fair in Stuttgart. The Fritz Studer Award for outstanding graduate and doctoral theses in the field of mechanical engineering, which has now been awarded for the third time, includes a monetary prize of CHF 10,000.00.
This year’s winner was Dr. Josef Mayr from ETH Zurich. The academic was praised for his doctoral thesis on the topic of the temperature characteristics of machine tools. He developed a method to calculate and evaluate thermal effects on machine tools. A large number of exciting and interesting submissions were received from several European countries.

The Fritz Studer Award is directed at students and post-graduates of European universities and universities of applied science in technological disciplines. The award recognizes theses which aim to strengthen the innovative strength of the mechanical engineering industry with practical and realizable ideas. Submitted theses are assessed by a jury comprising scientists from ETH Zurich and technical managers of Körber Schleifring.
