Student named UK’s Young Engineer of the Year

University of Southampton student Andrew Cowan was named Young Engineer of the Year at the British Science Association’s ‘Big Bang Fair’ held in London to mark National Science and Engineering Week. Andrew, who is in the first year of an MEng degree in Electronic Engineering with Mobile and Secure Systems, received the accolade for his Search and Rescue Robot built during his A-level Systems and Control coursework at Sutton Grammar School. The large tracked vehicle he designed and built is intended for use in disaster zones, and is fitted out with a wireless camera (with tilt, pan and zoom), and a collection of wireless sensors including gas sampling.
