Surrey, UK | Posted on October 1st, 2007

Held at Alexandra Palace, the SET Awards are Britain's and Ireland's most important awards for science, engineering and technology undergraduates. Tom's award was based on his project entitled, 'Field Emission Characterisation of Carbon Nanotube Composites'. This highly prestigious award is open to graduating students from around the UK. Dr Neil Emerson, Director of Undergraduate Studies comments, " I am delighted that Tom's technical and engineering achievements have been recognised with the 2007 SETS Award."

Tom joined the University five years ago on the foundation year degree programme and graduated this year with a 1st class BENg (Hons) and US (Distinction). He is still studying in the Department following a one year MSc in Nanotechnology.
