Distinction pour une thèse remarquable

Chaque année, une distinction est attribuée à une sélection de thèses de très grande qualité, afin de mettre en valeur les travaux de recherche des doctorants et leur mérite scientifique.

Pour chaque programme doctoral, les diplômés nominés sont sélectionnés sur la base de leur examen oral. Puis la commission du programme évalue les nominés et récompense les meilleurs 8%.
