G&T Crampton, one of the longest established, leading building firms in Ireland has awarded a prize fund of €10,000 to students of Civil and Structural Engineering in the Dublin Region. This annual award which was initiated by G&T Crampton in 1979, recognises academic achievement in all three engineering colleges in the Dublin Region. Students from Dublin Institute of Technology, University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin were nominated for the awards in recognition of their academic success within their respective programmes and were presented with their awards at an event in DIT Bolton Street this week.
Professor Brian Norton, President of DIT, welcomed Philip Crampton, Joint Managing Director of the firm, representatives of the CIF and professional bodies, and engineering colleagues and students from UCD and Trinity to DIT for the presentation of the awards. He thanked G&T Crampton for the generosity of the awards and the encouragement they provide for excellence in the field of structural and civil engineering students.
Presenting the awards, Mr Philip Crampton highlighted the importance of providing a stimulus to reward and encourage bright students to follow a successful career in Civil Engineering. “We are delighted to have continued with this award since our Centenary Year in 1979. I think it is important for students to have the opportunity to complete some work that is outside their formal curriculum and I think The Crampton Award helps in that regard.’’
The award winners from the three colleges were accompanied by members of their families and by their lecturers and mentors.
