The 2010 Applidyne Engineering Design Scholarship has been awarded to joint winners Michael Bowen and Matthew Higgins.
Michael and Matthew both University of Adelaide students in their penultimate year of a Bachelor of Engineering, have each presented with a certificate and Cheque for $3,000 at a small gathering at the Applidyne Australia offices at Thebarton on Wednesday 20 October 2010. The scholarship winners will also participate in a work experience placement over the December – February period of their University Holidays.
Both students who were deemed equally worthy winners of the 2010 Applidyne Engineering Design Scholarship were selected from a number of University of Adelaide students who after sitting a Scholarship Test, were then interviewed by a panel of Applidyne Australia staff and then made presentations for an ‘Invention test’.
The students come to Applidyne already well decorated students.
