UKESF announces first annual Scholar of the Year award

The UK Electronic Skills Foundation (UKESF) has presented its first annual Scholar of the Year award to Adam Malpass. Adam is a final year student reading electronic engineering (MEng) at the University of Southampton. During a three-month internship with Dialog, Adam produced a new design for use in its range of flagship products and delivered a research report to help facilitate a move into a new line of business.
The award was announced at the NMI’s annual awards ceremony in London. Speaking at the event Neil Dickens, a director at IC Group said: “It’s vital for the UK industry’s future growth that we attract, support and retain as many talented young individuals, such as Adam, as possible.
“In a very competitive year Adam stood out from the crowd, especially for his infectious enthusiasm, outstanding contributions to Dialog and his encouragement of younger students to take up electronics.”
To help inspire younger students to take up electronics Adam has been involved in many activities with his former school, and through his university. These include talking to students of all ages about the exciting, varied opportunities in electronics and his university blog, which relates his experiences as an electronics undergraduate and responds to enquiries from prospective students.
