Head of College Prizes 2016

These inaugural prizes are to recognise and celebrate staff contributions that have made significant impact in the College of Science and Engineering (CSE).

Nominations were encouraged from both support and academic staff within the College and its affiliates, with four key areas taken into consideration; Outreach, Team, Inclusion and Diversity, Lifetime Achievement.

  • Outreach Prize: will recognise excellence in any area of outreach in CSE.
  • Team Prize: will recognise outstanding examples of team work in promoting any area of science and engineering in teaching, research, innovation or outreach.
  • Inclusion and Diversity Prize: will recognise individuals and teams in CSE who have contributed towards the advancement of diversity in STEM.
  • Lifetime Achievement Prize: will recognise exceptional service over a period of years to any facet of CSE activity – typically at least 15 years.
