Date: 11 July 2018

Luca Bonaschi, an Electronic and Communications Engineering BEng graduate, has won the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Prize.

The IET Prize is awarded annually to outstanding students who are completing an IET accredited engineering course. Luca was nominated by Professor Bal Virdee, Director of the Communications Technology Research Centre, and will receive a certificate and two year’s free IET membership.

“I am very proud and fortunate to have studied at London Met. The lecturers in engineering within the School of Computing and Digital Media are not only knowledgeable people but are committed to teaching and mentoring,” said Luca.

The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering networking institutions with over 168,000 members over 150 countries. “I am very pleased that the professional body (IET) have recognised my achievement. I have acquired the knowledge and skills that should secure me an exciting career ahead,” Luca continued.

“Along with my classmates, I have received excellent support and guidance at all stages of my study. In particular, I was fortunate to have my course leader Dr Pancham Shukla and a very supportive tutor Muhttin Onadim as my project supervisors. With their help, I could produce an engineering artefact fit for the School's summer show.”

Nick Winser CBE, IET President, said: “Our IET Prizes are a way for talented engineering students to be recognised for their outstanding ability in the early stages of their engineering journey. I wish them all the best for a very fulfilling and successful career.

“The IET is passionate about promoting engineering excellence and our awards and prizes showcase some of the very best engineering talent. All of the winners should be incredibly proud of their achievements.”
