Bath students win prestigious national science and engineering awards

Two University of Bath students have won prestigious Science, Engineering and Technology Student of the Year Awards.

Catherine Pink and Christopher Lamming received the awards, the most important for science and engineering undergraduates, at a gala dinner in Alexandra Palace, London, last night.

The two were given trophies before an audience of hundreds of students, academics, industry executives and government scientists.

Ms Pink won the AstraZeneca Award for the Best Biology or Biotechnology Student for her synopsis ‘Gender and the Origin of New Mutations’.

Mr Lamming won the Bentley Motors Award for the Best Mechanical Engineering Student for his work, ‘Analysis and Computation of Regularly-spaced Localised Buckles in Pipelines’.

There were 17 categories in the awards, with three students in the running in each category. All entrants had to submit a 2,000-word synopsis of their work giving details of a project they have been involved in.

Other Bath students who were shortlisted but did not win were Alan Pearson for the AWE Award for the Best Chemical Engineering Student for his work ‘Kinetic Modelling of the Alkylation of Benzene with Ethane’ and Kai-Ting Chuang, for the GlaxoSmithKline Award for the Best Pharmacology Student, for her work ‘Desensitisation of arterial P2Y1 and P2Y2 receptors’.

The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for quality research and teaching. View a full list of the University's press releases:
