Congratulations to engineering student Connor Meringolo (who has just completed his BEng (Hons) Electronic and Communications Engineering with a Year in Industry degree), who has been awarded this year’s Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Prize.

The IET Prize is awarded annually to outstanding students who are completing a course of study which has been accredited by the IET. Prize winners are nominated by their university based on having shown distinction in their course leading to the award of a first degree.

As part of his win, Connor will receive a certificate and two years free student membership of the IET.

Connor says: ‘this award is a milestone for me to show that anything is possible with enough hard work and dedication to something you love’.

Professor Danielle George MBE, President of the IET, said: ‘Our IET Prizes are a fantastic way for talented engineering students to be recognised for their outstanding ability in the early stages of their engineering journey. IET Membership provides early career professionals with the opportunity to connect with a global community, grow their networks and develop their technical knowledge’.

‘The IET is passionate about promoting engineering excellence and our awards and prizes showcase some of the very best engineering talent. All of the winners should be incredibly proud of their achievements. I wish them all the best for a very fulfilling and successful career – they are all difference makers of the future’.
