School’s Industrial Training and Scholarship Evening
On 18 April 2012, the School held its inaugural Industrial Training Poster Evening and used the event to also award Industrial Partnership Scholarships for 2012. The evening was a great success in that it showcased our students’ close links with industry and their training experiences to great effect. The quality of the posters and the 1 minute presentations was high and all students are to be commended for their efforts. It was particularly pleasing to see the enjoyment of everyone involved and the obvious “buzz” around the room.
The industry representatives such as Onesteel, Dunlop and Cochlear were impressed by the professionalism of the work and reiterated their support for the School’s industrial training program. Professor Veena Sahajwalla also thanked them for their support of the School’s Industry Partnership Scholarship Program.
The winners of the evening’s presentations were:
- 1st Prize – Claire Dwyer ($100 book voucher)
- 2nd Prize – Thomas Sinclair ($50 book voucher)
- 3rd Prize - James Ukritnuku ($20 book voucher)
and were announced by Dr Owen Standard, Deputy Head of School.
Another highlight was Giehard Nebre’s presentation reflecting on his industrial training cadetship experiences (as far afield as Chile), which rounded off the evening nicely.
