RGU Student Wins SUT Award

A Robert Gordon University (RGU) engineering student has received an award from the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT).

Matthew Head (31), who picked up his MEng Mechanical and Electrical Engineering degree Dec. 8, was awarded the tenth Martin Richmond Award, presented each year by the SUT to a student who has demonstrated academic rigour and a passion for their chosen subject. Head, who has secured a job as a graduate engineer for Siemens based in Northampton, excelled on his course throughout university, receiving the Alexander Nicol Carnegie Engineering Award from RGU’s School of Engineering two years in a row.

“I feel very flattered and honoured to receive this award,” Head said in an RGU statement.

Commenting on Head’s award win, the current chair of the SUT Aberdeen branch, Chris Milner, stated in an organization release:

“Matthew is a very deserving winner of the Martin Richmond award. He has demonstrated academic rigour and a passion for engineering combined with a vision of where he wants to progress in his working life.

“We also congratulate Matthew on the completion of his degree and wish him all the very best as he moves on to the next stage of his career.”
