Annual Sustainable Energy Engineering student awards sponsored by Weltec Engineering.
Students presented their final year dissertations with the hope of being the Weltec Award winner for 2021. Five students from the BEng (Hons) in Sustainable Energy Engineering at WIT presented their final year dissertations virtually to Weltec Engineering on 20th of May 2021, with the aim of winning the annual Weltec award. As expected the standard was very high from all students. Representatives from Weltec decided on the overall winner.
