Brunel Civil Engineering with Sustainability (MEng) final year student Kirsty Greener has been awarded the Cadzow Smith Engineering prize.
The award recognises and encourages leadership in engineering. It is based on a combination of academic ability, personality and initiative in engineering that will provide promise for the future.
In addition to Kirsty's great academic record, she received the award for her contributions to the wider community. Before starting at Brunel, Kirsty co-founded a charity called Loud and Proud; which gives young people the opportunity to help the local community through clean ups, residential home visits and events. Throughout her five years on campus Kirsty has been active in Brunel's civil engineering society (CivSoc) and engaging students in STEM activities. She demonstrated strong leadership during her placement at Parliament as a project manager.
Kirsty said: "This is an amazing finale to my studies here and will help my career development as a well-rounded engineer. I am so grateful to Brunel for submitting me as their candidate and the support they have given me throughout my five years here."
Awarded by The Engineers Trust, the charitable trust of the Worshipful Company of Engineers, Kirsty will attend an awards dinner in July where she will be presented with a cheque for £2,500, a commemorative medal and certificate.
