On Friday 22 April, at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, the finals of the national, annual TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards event took place at which Axel Forssberg, studying Materials Science, won the Engineering Undergraduate of the Year Award. The award was sponsored by E.ON and, through a series of online tests, application forms, interviews and assessment exercises, Axel emerged as the winner. His prize for winning is a placement with E.ON, a week's trip to one of their European assets and a meeting with an Engineering Director.
This award was one of twelve presented on the day and each award was sponsored by a graduate recruiter: Mars, Laing O’Rourke, E.ON, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Gazprom, Rolls-Royce, L’Oreal, ACCA, Mayer Brown, The Bank of England, Expedia and Civil Service Fast Stream. Axel was one of 120 shortlisted students who were invited to the final event last week.
Axel collected the award from Fiona Bruce (who hosted the awards) and Dave Newborough from the award partner E.ON.
Our congratulations go to Axel on this fantastic achievement.
