Megger Robotics Prize in Electronics
Second-year Electronics student Ken Roberts was presented on 28th September with a certificate and prize by Mr. Keith Morriss, the Technical Director of Dover-based electronics manufacturer Megger Limited, for his outstanding effort last year in a ‘robot buggy’ project sponsored by the company. This is the first occasion that Megger have sponsored this particular project, having generously sponsored the previous first-year project for many years.
Mr. Morriss also entertained a large group of students and staff with a talk about some of the work undertaken by Megger, who are a world leader in the design and manufacture of electrical and electronic test equipment.
Head of the Electronics Department, Professor Michael Fairhurst, said “The Department has very strong industrial links and we are always grateful to companies who sponsor prizes to reward and encourage students. We greatly value our long-standing links with Megger which, as well as having an outstanding international profile, has a strong local presence”.
