On December 9, TU Dresden acknowledged the best graduates of the academic year 2021/22. For the first time since 2019, the award ceremony was held in the presence of all honorees as part of a festive program.

The right to nominate the best graduates lies with the individual faculties and academic institutions. In its meeting on November 9, the Senate of the TU Dresden had approved the proposals.

Sophie Klempahn, who is now a PhD student in the group of Prof. Dr. Helmut Schießel, received the Lohrmann Medal for her outstanding Master’s thesis in Physics. Elissavet Sandaltzopoulou, former Master’s student in Dr. Natalie Dye’s group and now PhD student in the Brugués lab, received the Tschirnhaus Certificate, recognizing the best graduates in the field of mathematics and life sciences.

As part of the festive programme, Dr. Rita Mateus, joint DRESDEN-concept group leader at PoL and MPI-CBG, presented her research and encouraged future students to continue an academic career.
