Top Students Celebrate at Progression Awards
Every year the College of Engineering holds an awards evening to congratulate students that have achieved the highest grades on their courses. This year over 150 students and their guests gathered in Swansea’s Brangwyn Hall for an evening of music, food and applause.
Awards were handed out by College of Engineering staff to each student who achieved an average of 70% and above as well as to those achieving the highest overall average in their level. There was also prizes for the Overall Top Students of the Year which were presented to Jack Davies for Year 0, Thomas Pritchard for Year 1, Catrin Ch’ng for Year 2 and Rhys Evans for Year 3.
Amongst the high achieving awards were those created by the accrediting bodies. Aerospace Engineering student Kester Griffiths won IMechE’s Best MEng Project Certificate with Steffan Morgan winning the Institution of Engineering Technology Prize and Ifan Humphrey’s won the ICE’s Ground Engineering and Concrete Society Prize.
Head of College Professor Huw Summers said “Our Progression Awards event has greatly expanded over the years, this is a reflection of the hard work of our students and their lecturers. It is important that we celebrate the students who have achieved the top marks in their studies as it gives them well-deserved recognition for their efforts and is an incentive to all students to achieve their best outcome.”
