The DOSS Award (Dutch Open Student STEEL Award) is the annual international prize for master students, graduating in civil engineering at (technical) universities from all over the world. The award, initiated by TU Delft and Bouwen met Staal, assigns well deserved recognition and appreciation to graduation projects which incorporate and represent the features and benefits of steel for structural application. Participating projects can be related to engineering or research as well as product development or a combination of these.
This year the DOSS Award celebrates its third edition, amounting in 25 submissions by master students who have graduated between 1 January 2022 and 31 December 2022 at technical universities worldwide. Out of these 25 submissions the expert jury, consisting of 17 internationally recognized members, has appointed six nominees for the prize.
At the online ceremony each of the six nominees will give a personal elucidation on their graduation work. The nominee-presentations will be varied by short lectures on interesting developments within the international steel building industry.
Grand final of the ceremony is the announcement of the winner, elected by the jury. The winner receives a reward of 2.500 Euro plus an invitation to present the winning project at Eurosteel 2023, 12–14 September in Amsterdam.
The online ceremony will take place at 11:00 CET on 24/04/2023 and can be accessed free of charge here.
