IHE presents student bursary award at Coventry University

  • Tuesday November 21, 2023

As part of its Academic Professional Partnership Agreement with Coventry University at the School of Energy, Construction and Environment, the IHE can recognise any student or students who are IHE members and have achieved outstanding grades in a suitable civil engineering course.

The student bursary awards ceremony for Coventry University students took place on 26 September. Representatives from all five of the Engineering Council’s Joint Board of Moderators institutions, including the IHE, gave a talk to students about the journey to becoming professionally registered engineers.

Pryce Evans, IHE Council Member, attended the evening and presented the awards. He said: ‘It was fantastic to have the opportunity to present to these students who had become members of the IHE and had achieved these awards.’

The bursaries were presented to Jeevan Birdi, Joseph Kizhakechethipuzha, Mohima Akther and Sandeep Singh Sohansoha. Additional congratulations were passed onto Jeevan, who has also joined the IHE Council as a student representative.

Dr Neil Tsang, associate professor and the civil engineering curriculum lead at Coventry University, said: ‘The civil engineering course team at Coventry University is delighted to be an academic partner with the IHE. Transportation engineering is one of the core subjects of the civil engineering curriculum, and many of our graduates work in the highways sector.

‘This collaboration will enhance our students’ learning experience and support their professional development. We are delighted that the IHE gave the opportunity to our students to be considered for this prestigious student bursary.’

Steve Austin, head of the School of Energy, Construction and Environment at Coventry University, said: ‘The School of Energy, Construction and Environment is pleased to be an academic partner with the IHE for its civil engineering courses. This key collaboration will help civil engineering graduates as they enter such a vital industry. We are delighted that our students were recognised as student ambassadors of the IHE, and they have received this prestigious student bursary award.’

The IHE is keen to develop working relationships with all academic institutions to support students throughout their education and toward potential professional registration. Academic Professional partnerships formalise arrangements between the IHE and the academic partner over providing membership to the Institute, as well as advice and assistance on the routes towards professional registration for students.
