At the Society’s AGM Luncheon this year’s Donald Maxwell undergraduate award was presented to James Temple, who has recently completed a MEng in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at the University of Strathclyde.
James received a check for £1,000 and his certificate from the President of the Society Mr Archie Bethel CBE.
The award is given for the best final year degree project from a UK resident student undertaking their study on a degree accredited by The Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology (IMarEST).
Judging was undertaken by SMI Vice Chairman Mr Duncan Cunningham and member Mr Phil Green. The paper which most impressed the judges was Iain’s on the topic “Impact study of a revised sulphur content in marine fuels of 0.5% throughout the SECA (SOx Emission Control Areas) in 2015”.
