from Alan Wood, CEO of Siemens plc
Neill Campbell, this year's winner of the Sir
William Siemens Medal
Congratulations Neill Campbell.
Neill Campbell of Gonville & CAIus college, a final year student in the Department, received a Siemens medal from Alan Wood, Chief Executive of Siemens plc, at a ceremony held at the Science Museum, London, on 9th November 2005. Neill was nominated for the award in recognition of his excellent project work in the third year combined with his impressive progress in other parts of the Electrical Engineering course.
The Siemens Medal was first inaugurated in 1883; at that time only one was awarded annually. In 1993 it was further extended to fourteen of the leading Universities in the UK who are invited to nominate students to receive these prestigious awards. The 2 inch bronze medals are struck at the Royal Mint as replicas of the original medal first awarded in 1883, and the award includes a generous cheque.
The Siemens company offers these awards to raise the profile of science and technology, and to encourage students into the profession of electrical and electronic engineering.
