It was a honor to have been invited by UFES University Civil Engineer Graduation Program to be a member of the M.Sc. Degree Examination Committee for the thesis “Modelo matemático para planejamento de circulação de trens em uma linha singela” (free translation: Mathematical model for train circulation in a single line scenario) delivered by the student Edson Pimentel Pereira.
After the preliminary (qualification) examination session which happened on April, 2015, we had the last round in June, 2015 when Mr. Pereira has been awarded with the Master Degree.
I would like to register my gratitude to Prof. Rodrigo de Alvarenga Rosa for the invitation to take part in the examination committee of this M.Sc. project and I give my congratulations to Mr. Pereira for his achievement.
Taking part in this examination committee was one of the most important milestones in my academic career during the first semester of 2015.
