Exeter student recognised by Royal Academy of Engineering

Congratulations to Exeter student Philip Sibson (2008, Engineering Science), who has received one of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s “Engineering Leadership Advanced Awards”.

This national award scheme recognises and supports some of the most exceptional engineering undergraduates in UK universities. The Academy gives no more than 30 in any one year, and the awards are extremely prestigious.

The awards aim to help those who want to become role models for the next generation of engineers. They provide mentoring, support in planning for the future after university, and financial support which will enable each recipient to gain industrial and research experience during the holidays and to learn a new language. Receiving the award will enable Philip to fulfil his potential at university, and will help him and move into an engineering leadership position in UK industry soon after graduation.

Philip told the Engineering Department website: “It is an honour to receive this Award and an excellent opportunity”.
