The winners of this year’s International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers (IABM) 2012 Engineering Student Award have been announced.

Presented to 10 students, the awards recognise high-achieving college students in the fields of broadcast engineering or media technology.

The UK-based winners are Andrew Lawrence from University of York and Kamran Rajaby from Kingston University.

Also honoured are Gedlk Gokay, Pierre Allard, Julia Alvarez Gomez Omar and Quentin Gouhoury from Université de Valenciennes in France; Yannic Alff from RheinMain University of Applied Sciences in Germany; Melad Abou Al-Ghanam from Ryerson University, Canada. Two further winners from the St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television will be announced shortly.

Each award winner will receive funding to cover travel, accommodation, and expenses for a five-day trip to the IBC2012 conference and exhibition.

“Through the annual Engineering Student Award program, the IABM gives the next generation of industry professionals the opportunity to see the latest developments in technology, learn from senior industry figures, and possibly even meet a future employer — all at one of the industry’s most important events,” said IABM Training Academy training manager Steve Warner.
