Annual prize-giving honours top engineering students

Engineering students at the University of Aberdeen have been honoured for their achievements in the last academic year.

20 prizes were awarded to undergraduate students who have excelled in their field of study, as part of the School of Engineering’s annual prize-giving.

Prizes are sponsored by professional institutions, companies, or societies, including the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Society of Underwater Technology, and Rock Rose Energy.

Among the prize-winners was Redha Nacef, who won the Francis Morrison Prize in Engineering - awarded to the most distinguished graduating student.  Redha graduated with a First Class Honours degree of Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering, one of the most challenging undergraduate engineering programmes.  During five years of study, he achieved A grades in all but one course.

Meanwhile, the Inspiring Future Female Engineers Prize was awarded to Silvia Chamosa and Amy Connelly. Silvia, who is a Project Manager of the TAU Racing Formula Student 2020 Team, has graduated with a First Class Honours degree of Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering.

Amy is a School Convener (Engineering) and a recipient of the prestigious Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) 2020 bursary award. She has graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours degree of Master in Engineering in Petroleum Engineering.

Other winners include Callum Knight who won the Mark Fisher Memorial Prize as the best performing final year MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering student, graduating with a First Class Honours. Mark has also received the Institution of Engineering and Technology Prize, awarded to the most outstanding Electrical and Electronic Engineering student.

Congratulating this year’s award winners on their success, Professor Maria Kashtalyan, Convener of the School of Engineering’s Prizes Committee, said: “Congratulations to all of our prize-winners on their success. You have shown the tenacity, dedication, intelligence, creativity and determination to succeed, and we are extremely proud of you.”

Professor Igor Guz, Head of the School of Engineering, added: “The School is delighted to recognise and celebrate the academic excellence of our students, as well as their voluntary service to the University community.

“I would like to warmly congratulate all the students who have been nominated for prizes on their success. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. We are proud of your academic achievements.”
