Dr. Ted Stathopoulos to be given the 2015 Honorary Doctorate Award from Eindhoven University, The Netherlands
On December 22, 2014, The Doctorate Board of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands announced that it will award Dr. Ted Stathopoulos, Network Researcher and Concordia University Professor, an honorary doctorate for his “outstanding achievements in the field of Building Physics, Urban Physics and Wind Engineering”. The decision to award Ted the 2015 Doctor Honoris Causea was made unanimously by the Doctorate Board at TU/e. This is the highest honour given by TU/e in recognition of Ted’s many “contributions to the modelling of wind load effects on structures with applications to building standards, forming the basis for wind design of low-rise buildings in the National Building Code of Canada”.
TU/e is active in the field of wind engineering and building aerodynamics and has collaborated with Ted on much research in this field. This award will strengthen the existing ties between TU/e and the Centre for Zero Energy Building Studies (CZEBS) at Concordia University that Ted’s work has fostered. A detailed description of Ted’s research, contributions and achievements can be found here.
Ted will be presented his honorary doctorate in a public session at TU/e on April 30, 2015 followed by a symposium held in his honour. Congratulations to Dr. Ted Stathopoulos for this prestigious and well-deserved award.
