Doctoral Program Thesis Distinction
38 doctoral students distinguished in the academic year 2021-22
Created five years ago, the "Doctoral Program Thesis Distinction" aims to highlight outstanding research work.
Every year, a distinction is awarded to a selection of very high quality theses to recognize the doctoral candidates’ research work and their scientific merit. For each doctoral program, the nominated graduates are selected on the basis of their oral examination. Then the program committee evaluates the nominees and awards the best 8%.
In the 2021-2022 academic year, 38 of the 445 doctoral candidates were distinguished. These laureates received a certificate and an engraved pen offered by EPFL.
The list of awarded doctoral candidates, as well as a summary of their thesis, can be consulted on the following website: https://www.epfl.ch/education/phd/phd-awards/thesis-distinction/
