EPCIA Student Award

Passive components – like capacitors, resistors, inductors or filters – are crucial to make the (electronics) world 'go round'. There is no semiconductor component and no electronic circuitry which can work properly without passive components.

To promote both – the passive components industry and EPCIA – it has been decided to offer an Award to all students, graduate students and PhD candidates who participate in an ECPE event and have addressed issues related to passive components in their respective thesis or paper subject to the conditions stated below. The EPCIA Student Award programme grants maximum six Awards per year and will run for 3 years (starting from 1 January 2021).



Who can participate?

All students, graduate students and PhD candidates of age (individual persons as well as teams) who participate in an ECPE event (which might take place virtually) and have addressed in their thesis or papers subjects related to passive components.
The Award is open to Applicants as any such person who is enrolled at an education or research institution recognised by the respective state in which it is located, such as a public or private university, a university of applied sciences, a university of cooperative education or similar. It is not relevant in which country the education institution is established provided it is recognised in such country. Former students of such education institution have the opportunity to participate, provided the work was created during their studies and the Applicants were enrolled at such education institution at least 3 months prior to the deadline of the EPCIA Student Award programme for which the paper or thesis has been submitted. For the sake of clarification: Individual and group work is expressly permitted for the purpose of the Award, team members will be regarded as one Applicant.

What can be submitted?

Every thesis or paper that addresses subjects related to passive components. Each submission and any related content remain the property of the author(s) at all times. Application documents must be submitted in English.
