LONDON National Instruments UK & Ireland has awarded the prize for the Overall Best MSc Student in Electronic Instrumentation Systems at The University of Manchester to Mohammed Al-Loulah.
Al-Loulah said, “I have always aimed at a Distinction, but the NI prize was an extremely valuable recognition of my knowledge, skills and hard work.” He is currently applying for the UK Science and Engineering Graduates employment scheme and for scholarships to continue studying towards a PhD degree.
Originally from Syria, Al-Loulah began his studies at The University of Manchester in September 2004. He achieved 76% in taught modules and 78.5% for his project entitled 'Interfacing a DSP to PC by USB'. Both grades are well above the Distinction level of 70% and Al-Loulah finished top of the MSc class and Overall Best Student.
Robert Morton, National Instruments Area Sales Manager, added, “We are very pleased with our collaboration with the University of Manchester, and in particular with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. We are looking forward to building on this relationship, with more initiatives planned for the coming year. Building strong relationships with academia is a key strategy for NI, with the long term aim of helping to improve engineering education, and therefore increasing it's appeal to future applicants.”
NI awards two prizes to the top students studying MSc course in instrumentation and data acquisition each year and has donated data acquisition equipment to a laboratory for the MSc course at the University.
