Young Engineer Wins University Award
7 January 2016
A Trainee Engineer with Costain has won an award for gaining the highest overall mark in the penultimate year of his course at Loughborough University.
Nick Hill was presented with the Scholarship for Academic Excellence at a ceremony attended by senior university staff, including Professor Tony Thorpe, Dean of the University’s School of Civil and Building Engineering and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Teaching) Professor Morag Bell. Loughborough has 10 ‘schools’, or departments and awards go to those students who come top of their year, with the exception of the graduating year, in each school.
This was the first year that Loughborough has awarded this particular scholarship as it felt it should be rewarding students at the specific time of exceptional academic performance. For his efforts, Nick received a certificate and was a guest at a celebratory dinner with other award winners, senior university staff and the University’s Students Union Executive team.
Nick is due to graduate next year with a MEng (Hons) Civil Engineering degree and is one of the latest members of Costain to be helped through university.
