University of Warwick students engineer complete dominance in national essay competition

Three engineering students at the University of Warwick have swept the board in a recent competition run by the British Dam Society, taking all of the top three prizes.Ian Hope (Vice-Chair of the British Dam Society), Jason Kwong (1st prize); Justin Hill (2nd); and Nicholas Eccles (3rd)

Jason Kwong, a third year student, was named winner of the annual essay competition with fellow third year student Justin Hill taking second place. Nicholas Eccles took the third prize to complete Warwick’s success.

The national competition is open to all university students and essays are submitted and judged entirely anonymously by a panel from the British Dam Society.

Professor Ian Guymer and Dr Jonathan Pearson, from the University’s Engineering department, only submitted the three entries and were both delighted at the resounding success.

Professor Guymer said: “Everyone at the Engineering department are extremely thrilled that Jason, Justin and Nicholas have all claimed a top prize in the British Dam Society competition.

“All three worked really hard on their entries and it is just reward that they have all been commended.”
