The 2021 Asian Test Symposium (ATS) doctoral thesis award is one of the semi-finals of the 2022 TTTC’s E. J. McCluskey Doctoral Thesis Award. Named after Prof. E. J. McCluskey, a key contributor to the field of test technology, the TTTC’s doctoral thesis award serves the purpose to promote the most impactful doctoral student work, to provide the students with the exposure to the community and the prospective employers, and to support interaction between academia and industry in the field of test technology.

TTTC’s E. J. McCluskey Doctoral Thesis Award will be given to the winning student and his or her advisor.
