November 10, 2020
The Midwest Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Distinguished Master’s Thesis Awards are to recognize and reward distinguished scholarship and research at the master’s level. The MAGS GVSU Thesis Review Committee has recently selected Richard Gross as a nominee for his master's theses.
Richard received his Master of Science in Engineering degree in 2019. His thesis, Algorithm for Geodetic Positioning Based on Angle-Of-Arrival of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcasts, is the nominee for the Math, Physical Sciences, and Engineering category.
The review committee deemed Richard's thesis to be the strongest representation of GVSU's graduate student thesis work from the past two academic years. Richard's advisor, Dr. Nicholas Baine, noted that the thesis "is superbly written, the work is relevant to the current state ofthe art, and his design provides an extra layer of safety to a system all air traffic depends on."
The Graduate School will submit a copy of his thesis for consideration by a committee from MAGS and a winner will be announced in early 2021. Congratulations to Richard!
