The Board of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has decided to award Prof. Patricia Lago an honorary doctorate, in recognition of her significant scientific contributions to digital transformation and the development of more sustainable software.
Lago has brought sustainability to the international software architecture community and has also been a key driver for its establishment in the international software engineering community. She has contributed to the definition of various education programs and designed two master programs educating a new generation of software professionals combining software engineering with sustainability-related competences.
Lago’s academic contributions to the computer science research community over the years are greatly appreciated by the NTNU faculty at the Department of Computer Science. In addition, she has been an inspiration to many young researchers as a female role model in an otherwise male-dominated field.
Lago has been on exchange at NTNU in the 90’s under the supervision of professor Conradi. As far as we know this is the first doctor honoris cause in Computer Science at NTNU.
Lago is the Short Term Scientific Coordinator of the COST Action CA19122 EUGAIN.
