Physics undergraduate wins Student of the Year Award
Congratulations to Nick Kay who is the Winner of the Best Physics Student of the Year SET (Science, Engineering and Technology) Award!
The Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) Student of the Year Awards, is a prestigious event supported by industry and institutions recognising the achievements of some of the brightest undergraduates in Europe, with the Physics category judged jointly by IoP and the National Physics Laboratory.
Nick is the second MPhys project student supervised by Oleg Kolosov nominated for such an award (only three students from all UK Physics departments are shortlisted annually) with Andrew Hoyle being the first Lancaster Physics student receiving a nomination in 2010.
Congratulations also to Ben Robinson from Kolosov's group who helped to co-supervise Nick during his MPhys project.
There was stiff competition this year from Cambridge and St Andrews but Nick came top of all UK Physics Departments. In addition, he is the first student from Lancaster University to win such an award in any science, engineering and technology category so this is an outstanding achievement!
