Four Bath graduates shortlisted for prestigious SET Awards

Four graduates from the University of Bath have been shortlisted for the Science, Engineering & Technology Student of the Year Awards (SET Awards).

This is a great achievement as only three students are shortlisted in each of 16 categories. The awards are made for outstanding project work.

The SET Awards are established as Europe's most important awards for science and engineering undergraduates.

The following students were shortlisted:

  • Tom Blackmore (MEng(hons) Aerospace Engineering) - Airbus Award for the Best Aeronautical Engineering Student: "Investigation and optimisation of a wheel enclosure for a record-breaking, human-powered vehicle".
  • Catherine Charneski (BSc(hons) Molecular & Cellular Biology - Leadership Forum Award for the Best Biology or Biotechnology Student: "Avoidance of stop codons and costly amino acids in conjunction with gene orientation bias determines AT skew in Staphylococcus aureus".
  • Lauren Hatcher (BSc(hons) Natural Sciences) - Leadership Forum Award for the Best Chemistry Student: "Crystallographic investigation of linkage isomerism in metastable species".
  • James Faulkner (MEng(hons) Mechanical Engineering) - Bentley Motors Award for the Best Mechanical Engineering Student: "Computational fluid dynamic modelling of a pressure relief cartridge valve".

The finals will take place on 3 September 2010, when the students will have to present their work to a panel of judges.

The awards will be presented on the same day at a ceremony in front of an audience comprising of hundreds of technology students, academics, senior industry executives, as well as senior figures from government, scientific and technical institutions and the media.

We wish Tom, Catherine, Lauren and James the best of luck in the finals.
