Engineering projects took the project awards

The BHJ Foundation’s Project Awards went to two engineering projects at the summer graduation ceremony at the University of Southern Denmark in Sønderborg.

”The primary objective for the most successful people has never been solely to make money. They are motivated by the urge to show the world that they can make a difference”.

 

There were the inspiring words to the newly –crowned bachelors, candidates and access course students from businessman and ship owner Hans Michael Jebsen, who was this year’s principal speaker at the summer graduation ceremony at the University of Southern Denmark in Sønderborg. At the ceremony, the BHJ-Foundation announced the recipients of the annual Project Awards to students, who have made a difference with their projects.

 

Interface for parcel delivery system

Three students from the engineering program Interaction Design received the award for the bachelor study programs. Wafa Said Mosleh, Mike Kirk Andersen and Yen Mai Thi Trinh had in cooperation with the company aCon developed a new interface for aCons electronic parcel delivery system. According to the jury, the trio had designed an interface of highest quality, which can be used already today but which will also characterize the future generations of parcel delivery systems. Project supervisor for the students was associate professor at SDU Stephan Wensveen.

 

Innovatory solution to heating control

MSc in engineering Ana Ionesi received the project award for the master study programs for a project dealing with automatic optimization of district heating systems. The project was made in cooperation with Danfoss and consisted of the preparation of an algorithm (mathematical solution to a specific problem), which secures heat adaptation. The algorithm was implemented and tested, and according to the jury the concept was an innovative solution, which so far has not been seen. Associate professor Christian T. Veje from SDU was project supervisor.

 

The BHJ-Foundation’s Project Awards are given to closing projects on bachelor and master level written in cooperation with a company. The students are awarded a check of DKK 25.000 with a max. of DKK 50.000 per project. The company receives a piece of art.
