Engineering has been a category at The Undergraduate Awards since its inaugural year.
This category is open to all students of Engineering, including those of Computer and Systems Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Construction, Built Environment and more.
Entries for this category must be within the 12,000-word limit and have received a 2.1/A- grade.
In 2016, Sheng Rong Fang from Nanyang Technological University was the Global Winner of the category. His paper, titled "Development of Shape Memory Zirconia Particles and Powder Compacts", was unanimously praised by the judges, who said:
It is an excellent and comprehensive piece of work. The submission presents the motivation and context of the work very clearly and the methodological rigour and effort undertaken were well noticed by all judges. The author has made attempts to develop a deep insight into the work and has summarised the findings clearly, while outlinging future works. As a piece of undergraduate research, it will continue to inspired.
Nikhil Jacob, the European Regional Winner of the Engineering category attended the UA Global Summit in November 2016 in Dublin, and has some inspiring words to say about the experience.
With only 4 weeks left until the submission deadline on 12 June, we look forward to reading all the new research in Engineering from undergraduate students around the globe.
