The 2015 Wim van der Hoek Award went to Gihin Mok, who studied mechanical engineering at Delft University of Technology. He worked on his dissertation project in the department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering, specialising in mechatronic system design. His dissertation project concerned the use of inexpensive optical sensors for computer mice in the design of a planar precision stage. In the presence of the man after whom the award is named, it was presented by chair of the panel of judges and DSPE board member Jos Gunsing, lecturer in mechatronics at Avans University of Applied Sciences in Breda and technology innovator at MaromeTech in Nijmegen. The judges were impressed by the sheer scope of Gihin Mok's work. "Once again we have learned a lot as judges. He has adopted a systematic, multidisciplinary approach, from specifications to draft to elaboration to testing. We'd be happy to have him in our company!" Gihin Mok is now working as a process control technologist at Shell.
