The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) announced the winners of its 2016 Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition during the World PM2016 Congress & Exhibition, Hamburg, October 9–13, 2016.

The winner in the Doctorate category was Dr Elena Bernardo Quejido for her thesis on ‘Optimisation of Liquid Phases for Sintering Low Alloy Steels: Effect on Microstructure and Dimensional Control’, which was completed at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain.

The Masters winner was Uriel Tradowsky for his thesis ‘Selective Laser Melting of AlSi10Mg: Influence of Post-Processing on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties’. Tradowsky completed his thesis whilst studying at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, and the University of Birmingham, UK.

Both winners were awarded their prizes, sponsored by Höganäs AB, of cheques for €1000 and €750 for the Doctorate and Masters categories respectively.

The EPMA has organised a Powder Metallurgy Thesis Competition, at both Masters and Doctorate levels, every two years since 1998. The aim of the competition is to develop interest in and to promote Powder Metallurgy among young scientists at European academic institutions and to encourage research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
