Celebrating our graduating students (Computer Science and Electronic Engineering)
“Class of 2019 we applaud you, and we congratulate you on your achievements, and the prizes that you have won.”
We celebrate the achievements of our graduates, and award prizes to some of our most meritorious students. This year we had over 120 students pass through our graduation ceremony. Every student has made their own journey; learning new skills, gaining knowledge and applying their skills to challenging problems. They will be able to apply the skills that they have learnt in their careers. Some students have overcome personal obstacles, and made achievements far beyond what they felt was possible.
We are proud of each of their successes and individual achievements. Like a parent seeing their child go to University, we, as academics, are full of many emotions. We are happy to see the students complete, but sad to see them go. We are excited about their achievements, and wish them well as they develop their skills in their careers.
Every year, in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, we award prizes and acknowledge best academic performance. We recognise our top students from the School, and those who have worked hard and have gone far and beyond what has been expected of them. This year we gave prizes to thirteen students, and two of our students were awarded the University prize, awarded by the Senate to the most meritorious academic performance.
- Ed Waller (BENG Electronic Engineering) was awarded the Paul Green Memorial Award, representing the most meritorious Electronic Engineering undergraduate final-year project.
- Zhongbin Zhao(BENG Computer Systems Engineering) scooped the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET) sponsored prize for the best final-year student on an IET accredited course.
- Sabrina Zulkifli(MENG COMputer Systems Engineering) won the R A Jones Prize, for her proficiency in mathematics, on any Engineering-related Maths programme.
- Xianghui Zheng(BSC Electronic Engineering) won the RHC Newton prize for being the best second year mathematics student in any engineering related subject
- Cedric Manabat(MENG Electronic Engineering) was awarded the Dr David Owen prize (of any year) for outstanding performance in physics on any engineering course.
- Jointly Martha Mason (BSc, Computer Information Systems) and Jiaxiang He (BSc, Electronic Engineering) were awarded The Ada Lovelace Award for the most meritorious female in Engineering.
- Tomos Slater(BSc, Computer Science) was given the Jan Abas Computer Graphics Prize, for demonstrating the best use and understanding of Computer Graphics or related technologies in the final year of their course.
- Jack Tomkins(BSc, Computer Science) scooped the J H Gee Prize, for outstanding performance in Computing related Mathematics
- We congratulate both Turki Alharbi(BSc Computer Science) and Daniel Self (BSc Computer Information Systems) for being jointly awarded the Dr Jane Rudall Award for Achievement and Progress, which is awarded to a student who has attained significant achievement(s) having pursued their studies with particular determination and effort.
- Levi Roques-Nunes(BSc Computer Science), who was awarded the British Computer Society (BCS) sponsored prize, for being the Best Graduating Student on a BCS accredited Course.
- Conor Spann(BSc Computer Science)was awarded the prize for the most improved student.
Every year the University Senate offers prizes to the most meritorious academic performance. The committee considered candidates from all subjects in the University. In the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering we are proud to announce that two of our students were awarded these prizes.
- We congratulate Levi Roques-Nunes (BSc, Computer Science) for being awarded the Dr John Robert Jones Open prize, which is awarded by the Senate to the most meritorious academic performance.
- We congratulate Cai Williams(MENG, Electronic Engineering) who was awarded the Dr John Robert Jones Welsh prize, awarded by the Senate to the most meritorious academic performance.
