Shafath Chowdhury has won this year's prize for his work on Patient-specific design for high tibial osteotomy plates using densitometric calibration!
The judges at RO were particularly impressed with Shafath's final year project which was succinctly written, and demonstrated an outstanding understanding of the clinical significance of novel high tibial osteotomy.
We recognise that students have had a pretty tough time of it over the past couple of years. As an agency, we feel a strong responsibility to support and encourage the engineers of the future, particularly within the West Midlands. This annual prize recognises brilliance in the final year projects of UoB Mechanical Engineering students with a first prize of £500, with honourable mentions for runners up. Once again, competition was fierce and Team RO had a particularly hard time selecting an overall winner.
This year, honourable mentions are also awarded to:
Charles Heaton for his work on a Right Atrium simulator for haemodialysis catheter testing
Joe Garrett for his work on Vertical axis wind turbines
Special thanks go to the UoB School of Engineering and particularly to Professor Karl Dearn, Dr Yueting Sun and Dr Nan Gao.
We look forward to returning to launch the 2023 prize next year!
