IET awards

Exceptional engineering students receive IET scholarships

Students from across the UK have been recognised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) as outstanding, and have received a number of awards and scholarships. 

The Belling Engineering Scholarship is awarded to Archie Lodge. The scholarship is worth £12,000 (£3,000 per year for four years). Lodge, from Winchester, Hampshire, is studying MEng (Hons) Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

The BP/IET Faraday Scholarship is awarded to Gurpreet Johl, who is studying MEng Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.

The National Electronics Council (NEC) Scholarships are awarded to Duncan Wooder and William Honey. The scholarships are worth £4,000 (£1,000 per year for four years). Wooder, from London, is studying MEng General Engineering at Durham University. Honey, from Oakham, Rutland, is studying MEng Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.

The Gerald David Memorial Prize is annually awarded to an outstanding mature student studying for a full or part-time IET-accredited engineering degree. This year’s £750 prize is awarded to Sibongile Sibanda, who is studying Electronic Engineering at the University of York.

The IET Jubilee Scholarships are awarded to Daniel Eatough, Luke Godfrey, Bryan Hsieh, Rebecca Madden and Daniel Jones. Each Jubilee Scholarship is worth £2,000. Eatough, from Newcastle-under-Lyme, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Godfrey, from Frome, Somerset, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Hsieh, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, is studying MEng Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. Madden, from London, is studying MEng General Engineering at Durham University. Jones, from Darlington, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

IET FUSE Scholarships are awarded to Seema Kapacee, Edward Phillips, Daisy Prior, Helen Sheehan and Olivia Critchley. Each FUSE scholarship is worth £4,000 (£1,000 per year for four years). Kapacee is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Phillips, from Sheffield, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Prior, from Leeds, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Sheehan, from Liverpool, is studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Critchley, from Clitheroe, Lancashire, is studying BEng Mechanical Engineering at Newcastle University.

The Belling Engineering Grants are worth £3,000 and are open to British citizens who are due to commence the final year of an IET-accredited mechanical or electrical engineering MEng degree course in the next academic session. These grants are made in memory of the late Charles Reginald Belling, who was born at Bodmin, Cornwall, in 1884. In 1912 he started his own business in Enfield, manufacturing electric heaters, electric water heaters, electric cookers and immersion heaters. 

The four recipients of the Belling Engineering Grants are Rebecca Macindoe, Andrew Allan, Michaela Bousfield and Frank Taggart. Macindoe is studying MEng Electronics and Music at the University of Glasgow. Allan, from Glasgow, is studying MEng Electrical and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. Bousfield, from Kendal, Cumbria, is studying Design and Operational Engineering at Durham University. Taggart, from Toome, Northern Ireland, is studying MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast.

IET Grants, worth £1,000 each, are awarded to deserving students who are about to start the second, third or final year of an IET-accredited degree programme. Recipients of IET Grants are:

  • Jakub Sanak, studying MEng Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
  • Simone Castagno, studying MEng Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London.
  • Mandeep Mohan, studying MEng Engineering Science at the University of Oxford.
  • Devin de Sousa, studying BEng Space Technology and Planetary Exploration at the University of Surrey.
  • Ross Phillips, studying BSc Computer Science at University College London
  • Richa Bhuttar, studying BEng Electronic and Communication Engineering with Industrial Experience at Sheffield University.
  • Svetlomir Hristozkov, studying MEng Electronics at Edinburgh University.
  • Idris Oseni Alhassan, studying BEng Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Greenwich University.
  • Szymon Sidor, studying BA (Hons) Computer Science Tripos at the University of Cambridge.
