Well-grounded Defence of Thesis Projects

The thesis projects defence of students in Transportation Engineering MSc Program took place at Department of Transportation Engineering and Constructions on February 18, 19 and 20, 2014. On February 19, 2014 the defence started with one-minute of silence in honor of The Apostle of Freedom – Vasil Levski.
31 graduates in total went in for a defence, among them 5 from Building Structures Specialization and 26 from Transportation Engineering Specialization.
The thesis projects were developed at a very high level. The graduates presented their projects very interestingly and competently, as in their rhetoric could be seen their technical thinking and the high level of acquired knowledge. The defence was well-grounded with perfect technical drawings. Almost all elements and types of facilities of the land transport infrastructure were developed, designed and reviewed in the thesis projects. This resulted in very good CGPA.
The parents of one of the graduates attended the defence. They were given a Thank You Letter on behalf of Department of Transportation Engineering and Constructions that moved them to tears and they left proud of their son.
The theme of the thesis projects of the outstanding students are as follows:
1. Antoni Boyadzhiev – Overpass at km 150+234 on Mezdra – Gorna Oryahovitsa Railroad;
2. Vanyo Valkov – Technology and Organization of High-rise Construction;
3. Milen Ikonomov - Design of Railroad for Speed of 130-160 km/h by Using Tunnel and without Using Tunnel;

VTUVTU Thesis projects defence with graduates from Power Engineering and Electrical Equipment and Electric Cars MSc Programs were carried out at Department of Electric Power Supply and Electrical Equipment in Transport in the period of February 17 – February 20, 2014. There were presented projects in the field of power engineering, electric power supply and electric transport, the latest systems for management, control and protection of electric powered facilities. A large number of the projects reviewed problems related to the design and application of alternative sources of energy, the electric drive and control of electric transport vehicles, etc.
The Committee noted deep and serious attitude of the students to the discussed problems. Most of the presented materials can be used for theoretical and practical training of students in the above mentioned programs. Many stands were installed that will enhance the practical background of the students in the advanced fields of technology. Regarding this about 44% of the graduates (50 persons) successfully defended their diploma assignments. Prof. Pavlov and Prof. Milenov addressed the graduates and wished them successful professional realization.
