Alexandros Senteris-2016 Undergraduate Scholarship Recipient

Alexandros Senteris is now entering his senior year of studies at the department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering in National Technical University of Athens. He has been an active member of SNAME-NTUA since 2013 and elected as secretary/treasurer of SNAME-NTUA student section for 2014-2015. He currently serves as the student chair of SNAME-NTUA Greek student section. In the past years, Alexandros interned with reputable employers of the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. He has completed a useful internship in Hellenic coast guard Ships Inspection and during 2015 he worked in a shipping company. He considers both o these internships incredibly influential in his development as an engineer. He also recognised the role that SNAME plays in his professional advancement.

''Since the early years of my studies I am involved in SNAME NTUA, firstly as a member, attending many presentations and events. From that day until now, I served twice, as an officer of our student section trying to do my best to help and evolve our section. As I enter my senior year of undergraduate studies, my perspective on the marine field has changed a lot, with SNAME’s activities playing a big role in understanding our industry and broaden my view on our profession. This year’s SNAME Maritime Convention was special for me for an extra reason, as I was honored to receive the Undergraduate Scholarship Award. Being awarded by a society of distinguished individuals, like SNAME, is of great importance. SNAME has been a very valuable source of knowledge, as a result, I would like to thank SNAME for helping me to evolve my character and I recommend to any young marine engineer or naval architect to become an active member of our society and make use of the variety of privileges offered by it.''
