Honeywell Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement

This year’s recipient of the above award issued by the Institute of Measurement and Control is Miss Nuwani Edirisinghe for her final year project on the Calibration and Control of a Portable Electronic Device for Diagnostic Doppler Ultrasound Equipment. The goal of this challenging project was to design, construct and evaluate an electronic system for the calibration of Diagnostic Doppler Ultrasound Equipment in the frequency range 1-20MHz. This device should enable ultrasound equipment to be calibrated in-situ and remove the need for the use of the classical pumped hydraulic calibration system. Her work was sponsored by the Royal London Hospital and the Kent and Canterbury Hospital and has been very well received by medical staff. Congratulations to Nuwani!
