Qian Tang from Perth College UHI was awarded an IET Prize for gaining the highest marks in her BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Energy Engineering degree. The prize is awarded to outstanding students who are completing a course of study accredited by the IET.

As part of her win, Qian will receive a certificate and two years free membership of the IET.

Qian said: "I couldn't have done this without the support of my parents, I will always be indebted to them, and I will always remember someone saying that I would only get out of it what I put into it."

Mike Carr, 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.”
