Scholar wins EMSTA Innovation Award

9 January 2017

In November, Scholar Eneh Alexander-Ikwue received the EMSTA Innovation Award for highly-promising STEM students.

EMSTA (the Engineering, Maths, Science and Technology Association) has a long history of collaboration with Arkwright. Each autumn, at the EMSTA Prestige Lecture at the University of Hertfordshire, an outstanding Scholar receives the EMSTA Innovation Award.

This year's Prestige Lecture was on the topic of Crossrail and was delivered by:

  • Gordon Masterton who holds the Chair of Future Infrastructure at The University of Edinburgh and was the Government's Project Representative on Crossrail from 2009 to 2014 (Gordon was the Principal Guest at the 2013 Arkwright Scholarships Awards Ceremony in Glasgow - it's a small world!)
  • Chris Binns, Chief Engineer, CrossRail
  • Joe Bednall, Head of Commercial, Crossrail Rolling Stock, Bombardier

Eneh applied for her Arkwright Scholarship whilst taking GCSE's at The Royal Masonic School for Girls and is now studying A levels at Henrietta Barnett School in London. Her Arkwright Engineering Scholarship is sponsored by The Reece Foundation.

Well done to Eneh! Further details of Eneh's award can be found on the EMSTA Innovation Award webpage along with details of all previous recipients.
