Cardiff Chemistry Student Wins Undergraduate of the Year Award

24 April 2013

Max Feller, a year 2 student in the School of Chemistry has won the “Low Carbon Undergraduate of the Year Award”, sponsored by EDF Energy.

The rigorous assessment included a series of online tests, application forms, interviews and assessment exercises. Max wins a paid internship with EDF Energy including time spent in France and a personal lunch with a Station Director.

EDF only targeted a relatively small number of universities and so he beat off competition from other excellent students from other excellent universities. This award was one of twelve presented on the day and each award was sponsored by a top graduate recruiter: Barclays, Mars, Ernst & Young, Laing O’Rourke, E.ON, EDF Energy, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Rolls-Royce, Gazprom, Nestle and Mayer Brown.

The award ceremony, held at East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, was hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald.

This is an outstanding achievement by a very talented student, and all of us in the Cardiff School of Chemistry would like to congratulate Max!
