EPS Societies' Awards

Awards bannerThe College of Engineering and Physical Sciences celebrates the achievements of its 42 student groups with the EPS Societies’ Awards. We have a strong tradition of outstanding educational success; from public astronomy events to designing Formula Student cars, robotics to railways, journalism to diversity our societies do astonishing work not just in academia but also to promote careers opportunities, industrial visits, outreach guest speakers and, of course, social events. These Awards act as a reminder of the hard work and dedication undertaken by students to make the University a better, more vibrant place to study and play.

We had to do things differently this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and we sadly couldn't hold our usual celebrations. Instead we took our ceremony online and invited the entire EPS Community to join us.
