2011年5月3日

Two students from the University’s Faculty of Engineering have been awarded ‘Undergraduate of the Year’ awards in a recent National ceremony that took place in Canary Wharf, London.

William Ramsay, who is in his second year studying Mechanical Engineering, won the Engineering Undergraduate of the Year award, sponsored by E.ON. He will now spend a year on placement with the company, which will include a period of time working in Sweden.

William was shortlisted for the award from over 480 entries, and attended a final interview day in London with nine other undergraduates. Through a series of tests, interviews and assessment exercises, William was announced as the 2011 Engineering Undergraduate winner.

Andrew Sharp, Talent Resourcing Consultant from E.ON said: “We were really impressed with Will from the outset, he is very driven and motivated to exceed in his personal and professional life.

“He showed great natural leadership qualities both in one-on-one and group situations. Will is clearly committed to a career in engineering and I am sure he will go very far. We look forward to offering him an internship with us”

William says: “I am absolutely thrilled to have won this award and am really looking forward to starting my placement with E.ON in August.”

Third year Aerospace Engineering student Craig Wells did equally well in his category, winning the accolade of ‘Structures and Systems Undergraduate of the Year’.

The award was sponsored by Airbus and as well as receiving the impressive accolade, Craig will embark upon an internship with the company and will also be given a brand new Apple iPad.

Colin Sirett of Airbus in the UK said: “Craig proved to be an outstanding undergraduate among the excellent candidates who were finalists for the Airbus sponsored award, demonstrating qualities above and beyond what we would normally expect at internship level.

“We hope Craig will enjoy his placement with us and make the most of the opportunities available to him at Airbus.”

Craig says: “Through the internship I hope to gain some valuable experience of the aerospace industry, and put into practice some of the skills I’ve learnt from my recent aircraft design project.

“This year on our course we designed a 150-seat airliner, optimised for the low-fare-airline market.  I’m project manager of my group, and the project is scheduled to finish at the start of June.

“I’m now looking forward to seeing how I can apply my knowledge to real-life projects.”

Gary Hawley, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at the University, says: “Our engineering students continue to excel and to succeed in national competitions. Both Will and Craig have won awards of significant distinction, well done to both.”
