A STUDENT from Highbury College has received an award from the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
Tim Richardson was presented the Award by Mike Wohlegemuth, the vice-chairman of the Solent Retired Members’ Section.
Mike congratulated Tim and presented him with a shield with his name on, which will be displayed in the engineering department of the college.
He also received a certificate and cheque for £100.
Tim works as an apprentice for space technology firm EADS Astrium while studying.
He has now finished his course and has been offered a full-time position there.
He gained distinctions in all 12 units of study at National Certificate Level, giving him an overall double distinction grade.
Tim said: ‘It’s nice to see that all the effort I’ve put in has been recognised because I’ve been working very hard over the past three years.
‘I’m going to be a mechanical engineer so I’ll be overseeing the construction the actual satellite goes through.’
