|Peter Findlay - Oxfizz Prize||
|Kevin Obuya - Sir Harold West Award||
I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the Board of Examiners in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Department of the University of Sheffield for awarding me the Sir Harold Award for academic performance and promise in my first year at the university. By this recognition you have inspired me to work even harder to achieve better results at this prestigious institution.
|Oliver Johnson - Douglas Harrison Prize & Bramwell Prize||
I am a 3rd year Electronics and Communications Engineering student from Matlock in Derbyshire and I am very grateful to have received the prize which you sponsor. As a student I have a strong interest in communications and control systems, particularly with their applications in IoT, mobile communications and in the space industry. This prize will really help me in the future when I come to look further into graduate careers. In addition to my studies, I am part of the University's Shell Eco Marathon team (Sheffield Eco Motorsports: www.sheffielde.com) where I am part of the Electrical Propulsion sub-team, responsible for designing and building the electrical drive system for our ultra efficient battery powered car.
|Chatura Samarakoon - Mappin Medal and Premium||
I am honoured and humbled to be in receipt of the Mappin medal and would like to take this opportunity to thank the departmental staff on behalf of my year group for all the support and guidance they have given us over the past 4 years.
|Aleksandr Boldin - Oliver Butler Prize||
It is a great honor for me to be awarded with a university prize. I would like to express my gratitude to the Board of Examiners for making this decision.
|Edward James Bryan - Peter Hopkinson Prize||I have been studying Electronics at the University of Sheffield for five years, completing an MEng in Digital Electronics following a foundation year. I have previously completed a degree in music and have relished the opportunity to expand into a different, exciting field in electronics. The project we were working on was very interesting and novel experience and I hope the achievements we made can go on to benefit others|
|Tudor Andrei Mot - Richard Rhodes Prize||
I decided to study Electronic Engineering when I realized that we are living in this highly digitized world, with very few of us actually understanding how it all works. Throughout my university years I have worked as an intern in the Railway Signaling Industry, at Mot MacDonald, and in the embedded software industry, at Renesas Europe. I was awarded the Douglas Harrison prize in my second year of studies and received a scholarship as part of the UKESF Scholar scheme.
|Minghua Lai - Prof. Peter Robson Semiconductor Prize in EEE||I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the sponsors for setting up this award and to the assessor for recognising my hard work. I am really excited to know that I have been awarded this EEE prize and it is an honour to receive this. I spent much more time on my semiconductor project because I majored in Electrical Engineering. I might have done well but this award couldn't be received without my supervisor, Dr Ian Farrer. I would like to say thank you to him for helping me a lot on my individual project. My dedicated hard work has finally paid off. Thank you!|
