Best Student Award
MSc in Civil Engineering Bartlomiej Kotula recently won the best student award for his master’s thesis on the development of a BIM-based tool to support sustainable building design.
Congratulations to 26-year-old Bartlomiej Kotula, who won the best student award for his master’s thesis at the 54th International Conference of the Architectural Science Association, ANZAScA 2020.
His thesis was on the development of a BIM-based LCA tool to support sustainable building design during the early design stage.
“I’m very excited and honored to win this award. Without tremendous help from assistant prof. Aliakbar Kamari this would have not been possible, so big kudos to him,” he says.
Bartlomiej Kotula originates from Warsaw, Poland, where he graduated with a BSc in Civil Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology in 2017.
He came to Aarhus University first of all, because he wanted to experience first-hand the famous Danish ‘hygge-ness’, and second of all because the university is continuously ranked as one of the top universities in the world.
“To be frank, that made my decision quite easy,” he says.
Bartlomiej has now moved to Austria, where he started on his dream job as BIM manager at the BIM Excellence department at PORR Design & Engineering in Vienna.
Together with his PhD and master students, Assistant Professor Aliakbar Kamari from the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Aarhus University, published a total of three papers at the ANZAScA 2020 conference.
