The article deals with the contribution of Prof. Ing. Pavol Élesztős, CSc. in the field of engineering. He was born in 1948, studied and subsequently remained at the Faculty of Engineering at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava since 1968. Under his leadership 6 dissertation theses were defended in the study program of Applied Mechanics. He is the author of 1 monograph, co-author of 2 monographs, author of 30 reviewed scientific articles in journals, and over 250 original scientific papers published in domestic and foreign conference proceedings. Professor Élesztős is currently a Professor Emeritus and is known as a talented teacher.
This article is a celebration of prof. Ing. Stanislav Žiaran’s, CSc. contribution to the field of engineering. Born in 1948, since 1966 he studied and subsequently continued his academic career at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. He has supervised 2 dissertation and 42 diploma theses, which were successfully defended in the study programs Applied mechanics and Mechatronics. Prof. Žiaran is the author to 5 monographs, 9 textbooks, 13 university textbooks, 6 manuals for the engineering industry and more than 290 original scientific papers published in domestic as well as international journals and conference proceedings. He has translated of 111 ISO and EN standards, 107 research reports for practice and he is the editor of 20 peer-reviewed scientific proceedings Noise and Vibration in Practice. He also presented 16 requested lectures at world congresses abroad. Prof. Žiaran is a gifted teacher of mechanics and his students appreciate his enthusiasm and knowledge he is sharing with them.
