Last Friday, May 26, the Auditorium José Marques dos Santos hosted another Conferement Ceremony, an event where the Faculty of Engineering confers the most honourable distinction to those who completed their doctoral degree and defended their thesis in the previous academic year.
The ceremony, which began with the entrance of the Academic Procession, honoured not only the New Doctorates 2022, but also the winners of the Institutional Awards (Prof. Dr. Joaquim Sarmento Award, António de Almeida Foundation Award and Prof. Dr. António Silva Cardoso Award). António Silva Cardoso Award), the FEUP Doctorates that celebrated this year the 25th and 50th anniversary of their doctorate date and the winner of the Career Award, given annually by FEUP to an alumnus who distinguished himself by his extraordinary professional career, this year presented to António Mota, who gave an emotional speech before an audience that gave him back a standing ovation.
In this edition DEI highlights its Alumnus Bruno Miguel Carvalhido Lima, ProDEI Doctorate, who, with his thesis “Observability and Controllability in Scenario-based Integration Testing of Time-Constrained Distributed Systems”, received the António de Almeida Foundation Award, a pecuniary prize of €1500 which rewards the most original thesis, of high scientific merit and socio-economic interest, from the following Doctoral Programmes: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, Physics Engineering and Informatics Engineering (the group of doctoral programmes competing in this edition).
This thesis, supervised by Prof. João Pascoal Faria (DEI/FEUP), whose abstract and the full version can be seen in the open repository of the U.Porto, was for its author a stimulating and rewarding challenge, which allowed him to collaborate with other researchers and professionals in the area and to acquire new skills and experiences that enriched his education and curriculum. “This award was an honour and a public recognition for the work developed”, Bruno Lima tells us at the end of the ceremony.
*Were 19 the new Doctorates from DEI doctoral programmes distinguished in this ceremony (4 ProDEI, 7 Digital Media and 8 from MAP.i – joint program of the U.Porto, University of Aveiro and University of Minho), whose list can be seen in the page of the honoured Alumni.
