BP Prizes for undergraduates, October 2014

Congratulations to all the winners!

Some of our undergraduates have recently been awarded generous prizes, sponsored by BP, for performance in their second year (CET I). BP visited the department on the evening of 9 October 2014.

Four students were awarded BP prizes for outstanding performance:

  • Lingzhi Cai (F)
  • Yuqun (Eugene) Lin (HH)
  • Angiras Menon (CHU)
  • Edmund Wigley (CHU)

and the following were awarded BP prizes for outstanding coursework:

  • Jake Cramp (JE)
  • Samantha Fairman (TH)
  • Mingyu (Michael) Lu (DOW)
  • J. Miguel Santos Silva (K)
  • Eamon Wan (EM)

In addition, there were BP achievement awards to CET I students who were awarded a First or a II.1 classification. BP distributed copies of Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook to all those students.

In total, BP distributed cheques to 49 undergraduates.

We congratulate them all and wish them every success in the future.
