Dissertation awarded by the Vehicle Association Jubilee Foundation
The Vehicle Association Jubilee Foundation of the Austrian Vehicle Industry Association annually awards diploma and doctoral students whose work is of particular value and interest to the Austrian vehicle industry. This year the award ceremony took place on 25 May above the rooftops of Vienna.
A total of 12 award winners from the year 2021 were presented and honoured. They come from the Technical Universities of Vienna and Graz, the Johannes Keppler University Linz and the University of Leoben. Among the award winners from TU Vienna is Alexander Wasserburger, who wrote his dissertation as part of the Christian Doppler Laboratory in cooperation with AVL List GmbH.
In his dissertation, Alexander Wasserburger dealt with stochastic methods for handling uncertainties in automotive applications. The focus here is on the formulation of stochastic optimisation problems whose solution subsequently enables satisfactory, low-emission and safe operation under changing and unpredictable conditions. In addition to the dissertation, numerous journal publications, conference contributions and patents were also produced in the course of the research work.
The prizes were presented by Andreas Gaggl, Managing Director of the Austrian Association of the Automotive Industry. Rector Sabine Seidler gave the welcome and closing remarks. The award ceremony was accompanied musically by members of the TU Orchestra.
