Graduates and students papers win nets £11k MBA

ICE news

GRADUATE ENGINEER Louise Dale of Lewin Fryer & Partners has scooped £11,000 for an MBA by winning the 2002 Graduates & Students Papers Competition.

Her paper Hydraulic modelling of Pulteney Weir and Radial Gate in the context of the Bath flood protection scheme wins a place on a three year distance learning MBA for engineering business managers from the Manchester Business School.

Second placed Stephen Hall, graduate engineer at Alan Baxter Associates, also wins the chance for personal development, winning two years of a three and a half year engineering management MBA from the Engineering Management Partnership.

Tied for third place were Paul Rodgers from ICE Northern Ireland and Gareth Orchard from ICE Chilterns. They share a Thomas Telford learning card worth £1,000.

The 2002 competition was the first to offer MBAs as prizes, and is in response to the ICE's eagerness to raise the profile of the competition as a form of personal and professional development.

'We offered MBAs as prizes because people need to start thinking about their career progression beyond chartered or incorporated status, ' said ICE professional development manager Niall O'Hea.

'The papers competition, while based around a technical paper, is ultimately a communication challenge. Graduates and students who enter are clearly dedicated to improving themselves and it is only right that they are suitably rewarded, ' said O'Hea. 'An MBA is a well recognised step for continuing development.'

In addition to the MBA, Dale will also collect the traditional prize of Institution Medal and Thomas Telford book voucher at next month's annual ICE awards ceremony. Hall also gets a Thomas Telford book voucher.
