IHE presents first bursary award at London South Bank University

  • Wednesday September 20, 2023

As part of the academic professional partnership agreement with London South Bank University (LSBU), the IHE has set up the opportunity to recognise any student who is an IHE student member, has achieved outstanding grades while studying on a suitable civil engineering course and is also a student ambassador for the Institute.

This year’s winning student is Zhor Radjef.

In his summary, Dr Amer Ali said: ‘Zhor had obtained a first class range of grades in her highway module during the BEng civil engineering course, was first class in the overall BEng civil engineering course, obtained a distinction in her MSc transport engineering and planning course (including a distinction grade in highways and in the MSc research project – highway maintenance).

‘Zhor is currently a full-time student doing a PhD in highway engineering. She has been acting as a student ambassador for the IHE and contributing to supporting IHE student membership and IHE stands at university career fairs and open days.’

Carrying out the presentation at an event held at LSBU on 4 July, IHE past President Tony Sharp said: ‘It was a pleasure to visit LSBU and meet students and staff but more importantly to present the IHE’s first such bursary award to Zhor and hear how, as well as passing her MSc with distinction, she is working towards a PhD in highway engineering and is still finding time to be an IHE rep at LSBU.’
