Top Loughborough University MSc student wins SE Controls award
18 December 2015
Presented by SE Controls’ Design Manager and former Loughborough University research associate, Dr. Chris Iddon, the company originally created the prize several years ago to reward outstanding performance on the CIBSE and The Energy Institute accredited course, which is delivered by the university’s School of Civil and Building Engineering.
A graduate engineer with Capita Property and Infrastructure in Redditch, Matt’s excellent overall results on the course were also supported by his dissertation, which focussed on the CFD analysis and modelling of airflow in buildings during winter together with its impact on occupant comfort levels.
Dr. Chris Iddon commented: “At SE Controls, we’re constantly impressed by the quality of students emerging from this MSc course and each year it becomes increasingly challenging to select a winner in conjunction with Loughborough’s tutors. Matt’s CFD analysis, incredible attention to detail and fresh thinking proved to be the deciding factor this year, although a number of other students were also in the running.”
The Loughborough MSc covers aspects such as concept design, renewable energy and consumption as well as advanced thermal, airflow and lighting modelling, to ensure students have a complete understanding of the principles and practice of low carbon design.
