Academic Award Winners of 2015

Friday, July 3, 2015, the Academic Award winners of 2015 were announced during the festivities around the closing of the academic year. From the Automotive Systems Design program Serkan Külah, was nominated for the TU/e Design project award.

The price for the winning design project was given to our former trainee Serkan Külah. He was chosen out of 9 nominees. Serkan made a design for TNO Automotive. He  concentrated on the further development of a so-called virtual cylinder pressure sensor, developed by TNO. This sensor should minimize systems costs of the fuel flexible control system, which is essential for a successful introduction in the automotive market. By following a system engineering approach, Serkan contributed to specifying the business case and the hardware and software requirements. Furthermore, he managed to extend the virtual sensor concept to be suitable for realistic, highly dynamic engine operation conditions and to apply it for the first time to a novel dual-fuel combustion concept. With the implementation of a prototype, he also demonstrated the feasibility of this concept. Serkan is now a junior researcher at TNO Automotive.

We congratulate Serkan with his award and wish him success in the future.

The program management is pleased and off course proud that again a graduate from Automotive Systems Design won this TU/e Design Project Award. This award confirms that the program is fullfilling an important role in the market and that all efforts since 2011, to get the program up and running, are now proving to be successful.
