The Ernst Frank Prize 2022 was awarded by the Max Grünebaum Foundation on November 6

The winner of this year's Ernst Frank Award is Thi My Linh Nguyen. She is a talented and committed student in the industrial engineering program at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg. She is one of the top-performing students in her year.

A very communicative, ambitious and cosmopolitan young woman, Thi My Linh Nguyen uses her know-how specifically to develop herself and support others - outside the university, in her studies, in her work as a tutor in mathematics. As a research assistant in the departments of aircraft/engine design and quality management, she put her academic knowledge into practice. The Ernst Frank scholarship offers Thi My Linh Nguyen the opportunity to expand her knowledge during an internship in England.

Since April 2022, she has been a member of the Association of German Industrial Engineers (VWI) - the national association for students and alumni of industrial engineering programs. Thi My Linh Nguyen has already been involved in her faculty as a deputy decentralized equal opportunity officer since 2020. As an advisory member of the Faculty Council, she provided support in appointment committees and job interviews until September 2022. In addition, she participated in the development of an equal opportunity concept for the BTU, especially for the promotion of young female scientists.
