Top Student Award at City University 2014

Simon Wong, top student in the MEng degree course at the City University, has won the Worshipful Company of Bakers Scholarship for 2014.

The Master, David Bentley, was present at the Awards Ceremony on 8th May, along with representatives of the twenty other Livery Companies who provide Scholarships and Bursaries to leading students.

The Bakers Company has been a long standing supporter of the University from where, coincidentally, the Master graduated more years ago than he cares to remember!

Simon, originally from Hong Kong, is at the end of a four year course and has an outstanding record of achievement in research and design for manufacturing. His final year project involved the design of systems to improve mechanical efficiency and energy cost savings, which can be applied into a wide range of industries, including the food sector.

Simon is also an extremely articulate person, and won the Institution of Mechanical Engineers ‘Speak Out for Engineers’ competition for London.

The Company will be keeping in touch with Simon and will provide any advice and guidance it can as he moves forward into his chosen career.
