Congratulations to Marcin Dawydzik, who graduated in 2015 with an MEng in Structural Engineering with Architecture, on coming joint 2nd in the New Civil Engineer Graduate Award of the Year in a field of strong shortlisted candidates.
The New Civil Engineer said that as well as simply being brilliant graduates, this year’s Graduate Awards contenders were asked to set out a plan for what they intend to do in their year as Graduate of the Year. All six finalists had great ideas, but the ideas from our winner – and our joint runners up – were truly smart and truly inspirational. That said, all six had ideas worth developing and our judges are determined to see all six develop over the next 12 months.
Spyros A. Karamanos, is Professor of Computational Structural Mechanics, at the University of Thessaly, Greece, Department of Mechanical Engineering. He teaches courses in Structural Mechanics and Finite Element Methods.
This winning entry to the Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award describes how the University of Edinburgh has put creative design at the heart of its civil engineering degree programmes.
Congratulations to Dr Tim Stratford, Senior Lecturer in the Civil Engineering discipline and Head of the Engineering Graduate School, who received The Institution of Structural Engineers (the IStructE’s) Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award on 8th June 2016 for innovations in teaching design as part of our Civil & Environmental Engineering degrees.
Hyped are proud to announce they have been awarded funds from Innovation Initiative Grant, as well as a cash award, providing a modest, but comfortable budget to continue their research, development and testing. The group are keen to welcome new people and fresh ideas from mechanical, electrical and civil engineering as well as those who would be keen to help with outreach and marketing.
