Design Trust award for Angus College student


ANGUS College engineering student Steven Donnelly has been presented with the Norman Fraser Design Trust Award in recognition of his hard work and academic success.

Steven (19) is currently studying for his apprenticeship at Angus College whilst working in the family business, Diemax Precision Engineering based in Dundee.

The Norman Fraser Design Trust award offers a scholarship of £1,000 to an engineering student from Arbroath or within a 50 mile radius. Steven shone as a candidate for this award not only through his academic success but also his achievements in the World Skills competitions.

Having been hugely successful at a regional level, Steven is now representing the United Kingdom in the CNC Milling specialism of the skills competition. He will shortly be beginning his training for the World Skills London 2011 competition and is set to jet off to Calgary in June as part of his training.

Angus College engineering curriculum manager Jim Stewart said: “Steven is a very hard working and enthusiastic student and a deserving recipient for this award.

“His success in the World Skills competitions is evidence of his commitment to his work and we are proud that he will be representing Angus College at the upcoming events and competitions.”
