Apprentice win for graduate Tom

Mechanical Engineering graduate Tom Pellereau has been crowned the winner of The Apprentice and will now become Lord Alan Sugar's newest business partner.

Professor Tony Miles, Head of Department of Mechanical Engineering, said: "We are delighted and extremely proud that our former graduate Tom Pellereau has won this year's The Apprentice. We remember Tom well, he was a quiet, understated, self-effacing individual who was a high achiever as testified by his First Class honours in our MEng degree in Innovation and Design.

"It seems that his personality, inventive skills and enterprise won the day. We certainly would like to think that his experience as a student at Bath played a significant part in equipping him with the skills that helped him both in his career, prior to appearing in the The Apprentice, and in his current success."

Tom completed his time at Bath in 2002, leaving with an MEng degree in Innovation and Engineering Design. He showed his entrepreneurial streak just after graduating, with the development of an innovative 'S' shaped nail file which is sold in Superdrug stores across the country.

A business plan focused on specially designed office seating highlighted Tom's inventor capabilities and eventually won him the series.
