About the student awards

Matthew Ball - Winner of the 2012 IMechE Best Project Certificate Each year Engineering and Technology students who have shown excellent progress in their studies are awarded prizes to mark their achievements.

Students who meet the prize criteria are identified at exam boards during the Summer. The nominations are then discussed at a Prize Committee in August before a final list of winners is produced.

Prizes are presented to the students during a special awards ceremony in November in front of family, friends and VIP guests.

The time period between the committee meeting and the awards in November is spent notifying sponsors and winners of the outcome. This is also the time when the planning and event organisation is carried out, including arranging a venue, producing certificates, inviting VIP guests and arranging payment of prize monies.

Prizes are donated and awarded by the School's many sponsors and benefactors. Award categories have developed from relationships with professional accrediting bodies, members of Industrial Advisory Groups, and endowments from benefactors with a personal interest in the varied fields of Engineering and Technology.
