1) The Engineering Architecture Prize
An international essay competition held by the IStructE for graduates and students. The essay was to be written on a structure of your choice, and my essay concerned the quadripartite vaults at London Bridge Station.  The prize was £500 and an invitation to the annual People and Papers Awards Luncheon (which sadly I couldn’t attend due to exams!). I’m also hoping to get my work published in the IStructE’s magazine, The Structural Engineer, in the near future. Watch this space…
               
2) The IStructE Surrey Regional Group Student Prize
This was awarded me for me dissertation project “An Assessment of the Quadripartite Vaults at London Bridge Station” which was judged to be the best student project in the region.

3) The Atkins Prize
Again, awarded for my dissertation, but this time for being the project that has contributed the most to the civil engineering profession.
