ALLYCAD & CIVIL DESIGNER STUDENT AWARDS

The annual merit award ceremonies recently took place at the Free State Central University of Technology and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology respectively. These awards were issued to students who performed exceptional work in the 2004 academic year and who produced top-class CAD designs.

 

The Faculty of Engineering, Information & Communication Technology at the Free State Central University of Technology, held their annual prize giving ceremony on Friday 06 May 2005.

 

Mr. G. Ntimane (right) received the AllyCAD award for being the best CAD-drawing student and obtained an average of 91% in the CAD-course. Congratulating him and handing over the Knowledge Base floating trophy, is Mr Jurie Vermaak, Learning Programme Head for Civil Engineering.

 

 

The second award ceremony was held at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology's Civil Engineering and Surveying Department on Wednesday 18 May 2005.

 

Awards were issued in various categories and our National Sales Manager, Reece Hanning, was there to present the trophies.

 

The first award went to Hilgard Terblanche and Wanro Hayes who received a joint award for the Best Civil Design Project.
 

 

The second award went to Daniel Struwig for the Best First Year AllyCAD Project.
 

 

And last but not least, the third and final award went to Tracey Pretorius for being the top student in Computer Applications 3.
 

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank these top students for their outstanding academic achievements!
