The winner of the inaugural RUASRT Undergraduate Student Achievement Prize for 2017 has been announced – David Tennent. This prize is awarded to an undergraduate student member of RUASRT who has demonstrated a high level of commitment to the team, motivation to improve our research capability and demonstrated outstanding leadership ability. This award comes with a cash prize of $2000.
David has worked tirelessly in his efforts as undergraduate team leader this year, mentoring less-experienced students through their design, build and fly projects. Of particular note are his contributions to this year’s Open Day, preparations for the International Micro Air Vehicle (IMAV) competition, and general lab administration and organisation (which is vitally important to any organisation’s efficiency). He has proven himself as an exemplary team player and we thank him for his hard work.
Good on you, Dave!
