Not­ting­ham Col­lege has teamed up with Mer­cedes – AMG-HPP to launch a Stu­dent of the Year’ award scheme 2019 for its engi­neer­ing students. 

The Stu­dent of the Year’ scheme is aimed at inspir­ing Engi­neers of the Future, with Mer­cedes-AMG-HPP work­ing along­side col­leges through­out the UK to encour­age and inspire stu­dents to be suc­cess­ful in their studies.

The scheme is open to all stu­dents on rel­e­vant full-time engi­neer­ing cours­es, who can demon­strate reli­a­bil­i­ty and com­mit­ment through­out the dura­tion of their course, plus time­ly sub­mis­sion of their course­work. The suc­cess­ful stu­dent will also have to demon­strate a keen inter­est and curios­i­ty in engi­neer­ing and be extreme­ly self-moti­vat­ed. The win­ner will be cho­sen via year-round assessments.

Build­ing on a pas­sion for both F1 and Engi­neer­ing, the lucky win­ner will get a week’s work expe­ri­ence at the Mer­cedes-AMG-HPP fac­to­ry in Brix­worth (Northamp­ton) work­ing along­side the high­ly suc­cess­ful and moti­vat­ed team of mul­ti­ple-F1 world con­struc­tor cham­pi­onship engi­neers. Along­side this, the win­ning stu­dent will also receive £500 prize mon­ey and most excit­ing­ly, direct entry into their Appren­tice­ship Assess­ment Centre.

Helen Brookes, Learn­ing & Devel­op­ment Co-ordi­na­tor at Mer­cedes AMG HPP said: 

At Mer­cedes our stu­dents are our future work­force. We run many suc­cess­ful stu­dent schemes with appren­tices and place­ment and grad­u­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties with­in all areas of the busi­ness includ­ing design, man­u­fac­tur­ing, assem­ble and test engi­neer­ing. I tru­ly believe in this scheme and work­ing close­ly with Not­ting­ham Col­lege to build a tal­ent pool for future engi­neer­ing with­in an excit­ing and fast paced indus­try, we are thrilled to have Not­ting­ham Col­lege join us and be part of the scheme for 2019

Helen Brookes — Learn­ing & Devel­op­ment Co-ordi­na­tor at Mer­cedes AMG HPP

Gavin Var­ley, Head of Tech­nol­o­gy at Not­ting­ham Col­lege said:

This is a unique prize and fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty for one of our stu­dents to get invalu­able work expe­ri­ence at a lead­ing engi­neer­ing busi­ness. We are proud to have been cho­sen to be involved with Mer­cedes AMG-HPP Stu­dent of the Year Scheme. Hav­ing major com­pa­ny sup­port is often a key dri­ver in skills devel­op­ment and the prize pack­age on offer is excep­tion­al and will inspire young engi­neers of the future to look at the diverse range of career options with­in the ever-chang­ing engi­neer­ing sector.
