(L to R) Chancellor Lord David Willets, Dr Hugo Williams and President & Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Boyle

Dr Hugo Williams was awarded a University Distinguished Teaching Fellowship at the same July graduation ceremony as our graduating class of 2018. The award was made in recognition of his leadership of improvements to the student experience in the Department.

Commenting on the award, Hugo said: “It is a great honour to be recognised for my role in the significant improvements in student experience and results we have achieved, and especially pleasing to receive this in the same ceremony as our students receive their degrees. This is very much a team effort of staff and students; we will continue to work hard to develop world-class engineering graduates to tackle the world’s challenges!”
