Senad Dizdar, a Development Engineer at Höganäs AB, Sweden, has been awarded the title of docent at KTH, the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology. Docent is the highest scientific title awarded to someone who is not employed at the university.
The title docent is above all an acknowledgement, states Höganäs, but also gives the right to teach and supervise on all university levels, as well as serve as faculty examiner and participate in grading committees.
“I’m very happy as it is a professional acknowledgement,” stated Dizdar. “There is a lot of work leading up to this, which includes peer reviewed technical papers published in scientific journals. These publications and the quality of results are one requirement before one is considered for this degree.”
“I would like to congratulate Senad,” added Hans Söderhjelm, Vice President Market and Product Development. “The award strengthens Höganäs’ ties to the university and is a confirmation of the high level of our scientific work.”
