Susie Smart, 22, a product design engineering student from Strathclyde University's department of design manufacture and engineering management, is the winner of this year's £1500 Prince Philip Prize, one of the top prizes awarded by the Glasgow Hammermen guild.
The Prince Philip Prize is open to all winners of the £300 Hammermen Awards, for which engineering students under 25 years studying at West of Scotland universities and colleges are nominated by their institutions.
Pictured outside the Trades Hall in Glasgow's Merchant City, Smart, from Pittenweem in Fife, is undertaking an 11-week series of internships at US design engineering firms, starting at Advanced Infrastructure Design Engineering of New Jersey. She won the award on the strength of a portfolio of university work including a machine for tying the ends of sausages and a computerised programme rewarding physical activity in young children.
