Study award of the district Olpe goes to former employee
District Administrator Theo Melcher recently honored three successful graduates of the University of Siegen with the Olpe District Study Award. The prize for 2020 is shared by Dr. Carola Bilgen from Kirchhundem and Laura Birlenbach from Wenden, who each received a cash award of 1,000 euros for their outstanding theses. Dr. Felicitas Pielsticker from Siegen had to wait a long time for her prize, as last year's award ceremony was cancelled due to the Corona pandemic.
Dr. Carola Bilgen studied business mathematics and received her doctorate from the Chair of Solid Mechanics. In her dissertation, the Heinsberg native dealt with numerical simulations of fracture mechanics problems using phase field models. Such computer simulations can be used to predict under what conditions and in what way cracks form in materials and how they propagate. "The topic is very ambitious and theoretically extremely challenging," Prof. Dr. Weinberg praised in her review. At the same time, she says, the research on this is of great practical value to companies, for example in product development and the virtual design of machine components.
The study prize of the Olpe district, endowed with 2,000 euros, is awarded annually for outstanding, practice-oriented scientific theses at the University of Siegen. The award winners are proposed by the Commission for Research and Young Academics of the University of Siegen and selected by an independent jury.
Elite programme for students with language skills at the Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Saint-Etienne (ENISE)
Who can apply?
Each year, three students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at both Bachelor's and Master's level are selected to study abroad at ENISE.
What are the requirements?
The department is responsible for the selection of students. A letter of motivation and curriculum vitae in English are required for the application, as well as a certificate of study and a current overview of academic achievements.
When is the application deadline?
Students apply for studies abroad in the winter semester for the following winter semester and/or summer semester. Currently, the application deadline for stays abroad in the academic year 2022/23 is 15 December 2021. In April 2022, any remaining seats for the summer semester 2023 will be advertised on the webpage.
What qualifications do I acquire?
Students can have the courses they attend at ENISE credited to their degree programme in Siegen. In addition, students gain an insight into other cultures, perhaps learn a new language and broaden their horizons.
How long do I stay abroad?
Students can go abroad for a semester or an academic year. The winter semester at ENISE lasts from September to January, the summer semester from February to June.
Which courses can I take?
As is the case at the University of Siegen, the courses offered vary from semester to semester and must be researched independently by the students. ENISE offers its own catalogue for English-language courses.
