An Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering student receives an award for his “immense innovation and commitment” after designing an aircraft capable of a flight on Mars.
Jamie Horn, who graduated with a First Class degree in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering at Wrexham Glyndŵr University (WGU), is this year’s local winner of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) prize. He was recognised for his final year dissertation, “Development of Next Generation Air Vehicles for Mars and Beyond”.
A ground-breaking new scheme secured more than ￡800,000 of funding. It will inspire a love of learning among children and young people in North Wales by promoting access to extracurricular activities.
WGU will work with Bangor University and several other partners to pilot the scheme over the coming year. This is a shared civic mission commitment to work in partnership to end social inequality in the region.
