The 1st prize of DKK 25,000 went to Anna Lyhne Jensen & Jakob Hærvig, M.Sc.’s in Thermal Energy and Process Engineering with the argument:
“Based on a unique approach, which combines experimental work with numeric and analytical analysis methods, Anna and Jakob have made a diploma work at the highest level and it is impossible not to be impressed. The dissertation itself has not only been made at an extremely high academic level but it has also been written in a fluently and varying English, which sets new standards for diploma works in the department.
