The Annual Prize Giving Ceremony for the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building was held in May, 2009.
Students from across the faculty's three schools were awarded for their outstanding academic achievements in 2008 with over 50 prizes won on the night.
Tom Fereday, who completed his Bachelor of Design in Industrial Design, was awarded the Jack Greenland Travelling Scholarship, competing with students across the entire faculty in their final year of study.
The prize gives Tom an international airfare to explore the area of environmentally sustainable development - an appropriate opportunity considering his Major Work “The Solar Stand”.
"I will use the award to work and collaborate with companies and individuals in Europe to find out first hand how sustainable design is being successfully and appropriately implemented into the everyday practice of industrial design consultancies," says Tom.
"Winning this award on completion of my degree was a great honour and an extremely satisfying way to finish my time at UTS," he says.
Another student to collect not one, but two prizes on the night, Jemma Cook, completed both her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture and Master of Architecture on a high.
"UTS offers an extremely intensive Architecture course and I am proud to complete both my degrees at UTS, and in particular, to do so with formal recognition of my consistent high standard of work with the AIA Chapter Prize for History & Theory and the Tony Van Oene Award for Design," Jemma says.
Jemma who worked throughout her two degrees for Giles Tribe Architects, will continue in the architecture firm working under its Design Director on residential projects and projects of urban significance.
The UTS Annual Prize Giving Ceremony for the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, works with industry to reward students across every year of the faculty's courses who have shown exceptional ability in their relevant subjects and across their course as a whole.
