Student wins prestigious engineering award

Andrew Bryant, a Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Bath currently on work placement with OCRobotics, has won a prestigious Engineering Leadership Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The award, worth up to £7,500, is granted to only a handful of the most outstanding UK engineering undergraduates each year and aims to accelerate an individual's personal and professional development, preparing them for fast-track careers in UK industry.

Andrew said: “I am thrilled and excited with the opportunities this award will give me, and look forward to using it to better myself as an engineer and a businessman'.

“Certainly, I feel the exceptional support and experience gained at OCRobotics was critical to my successful application and would recommend the benefits of the placement scheme to all undergraduates.”

Bristol-based OCRobotics is the world leading manufacturer of the snake-arm robots used in nuclear, defence and aerospace applications. These robots have tentacle-like arms that can carry out tasks in hard-to-reach areas.
