All fourteen of the students who completed the MPhil in Nuclear Energy passed the course. This was its first year, which made it more uncertain and more complex for students. All of them are to be congratulated in passing.
The top student was Chris Harrington who wins the Lewins Prize. Prior to taking the course he completed a Physics Degree at the University of Durham.
Both he and Peter Husemeyer were awarded a Pass with Distinction for the course. Peter has undergraduate and masters degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Cape Town. Peter is now starting a PhD programme in Nuclear Engineering in the Department of Engineering.
