Each year the Glasgow University Engineers’ Society Award Medal and Prize is made to the First Class Honours Engineering graduate considered most likely to make a notable contribution to the engineering profession and to the well-being of their country. The Award is made on the recommendation of the heads of department, subject to approval by Senate, and the privilege of presenting it currently rests with the GU68 Engineers Trust.
At the graduation ceremony in the Bute Hall in June 2018, two of our Trustees, Chris Gunstone and Donald Coutts presented the Glasgow University Engineers’ Society Medal to Paula Pappas, who graduated with Honours in Civil Engineering with Architecture.
Paula supports FemEng within the School of Engineering, in connection with which she had just returned from three weeks in Rwanda. You can learn more about FemEng’s work in Rwanda here.
“FemEng in Rwanda” is a project led by university students in the University of Glasgow to encourage participation of young women in science and engineering fields.
