Sarah Rough awarded Pilkington Prize

Dr Sarah Rough has been awarded one of this year’s Pilkington Teaching Prizes.

The Pilkington Prizes are awarded annually to teaching staff for their outstanding quality and approach to teaching. The awards were initiated by Sir Alastair Pilkington who believed that the quality of teaching was crucial to the University’s success. There are twelve prizes awarded each year, with nominations made by each School.

Dr Sarah has been teaching within the Department since the late 1990s. She is also the Programme Manager for the M.Phil. in Advanced Chemical Engineering. Dr Sarah says: "I would like to thank all the staff and students, past and present, who have helped me to develop my skills as a teacher. Many CEB academics have been an inspiration for me throughout my academic studies and career; I hope that I am able also to inspire others in some meaningful way."

The award ceremony will be held on 21 June 2018 and as the first prizes were awarded in 1994, this will be the 25th anniversary.
