These type of courses have been developed, presented and given by Dr. Thomas Lagö for more than 25 years

Dr Thomas Lagö’s pedagogical experience includes:

  • Several courses on Presentation Techniques, both courses taken, courses developed but also courses presented.
  • Selected as a professional teacher for College level in Jönköping. This was done after an evaluation process. The title “teacher/professor” was then given based on an evaluation of Dr. Thomas Lagö’s pedagogic knowledge and experience.
  • Development of several courses at College level, University level, under-graduate, graduate and post-graduate level and courses for the industry. Course content range from signal processing topics, measurement techniques to sensor technology and software concepts.
  • Frequently an Invited Speaker at international conferences and also did an open speech at a database software conference in Ronneby, Sweden (db-days).

Dr Thomas Lagö’s AWARDS

  • Best Poster Paper Award, International Association for Vehicle and System Dynamics, 16th  Symposium on “Vehicle Dynamics,” South Africa, 1999.
  • A 12 million US dollar research grant, the largest grant ever awarded in Sweden within that research field. Dr. Thomas Lagö was the Project Manager and the responsible applicant. After the grant was awarded, he became the Chairman of this large research project. 18 Universities in Sweden competed for the grant and the National Science Foundation in the USA was used as an evaluator to judge which group should receive the award. The money was awarded by KKS, the Foundation for Knowledge and Competence Development.
  • A national prize in Sweden for Thomas Lagö’s outstanding work in the team, building a new university fostering a strong cooperation with industry. The university started 1989 and within 9 years, managed to reach a full university status with Ph.D. level examination rights. This work was also recognized in TV programs in Sweden. The prize was given by the Blekinge County Industry Board.
  • Thomas Lagö’s patent “Device and Method for Analysis and Filtration of Sound” was selected as one of the six best (all six as “first prize”) patent ideas in Sweden in 1998. The prize was given by the Swedish National Board for Industry Development (NUTEK).
  • Thomas Lagö was selected as the Information Technology Expert, for a show/panel discussion in the Swedish TV4 channel regarding IT development and interaction with universities (a video exist).
  • Thomas Lagö was awarded “Outstanding Professor/Researcher” in his petition for a US Immigration Green Card. By this award, Dr. Thomas Lagö’s petition was handled with top priority. This award was based on several criteria stated by INS in the USA.
  • Thomas Lagö was awarded “Best Session Paper” at the WCNDT2012 in Durban, South Africa, April 2012 (World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing, 1500 attendees from 90 countries).

Dr. Thomas Lagö has been the supervisor and/or examiner for the following graduate and under-graduate thesis and projects (High-School, B.Sc and M.Sc):
