A Galway student who achieved grades of over 80% in her first year of studies on the Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering in Atlantic Technological University (ATU) has won a top award and bursary from the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE). Ellen Ward from Creggs, Co Galway, was presented with the CABE Southern Ireland Region student bursary and certificate award by CABE board member and chair of CABE Southern Ireland Region David Courtney at ATU’s Galway campus this week (Tues 6 Dec 2022).
Civil Engineering student Ellen won the accolade for her outstanding academic achievement during her first year of study in ATU (Galway). She obtained a grade average of over 80%, being the highest obtained in the Department of Building and Civil Engineering at ATU (Galway) in first year.

Ellen was delighted to receive the CABE award and is now eagerly looking forward to commencing her industrial placement in January 2023.
David Courtney congratulated Ellen and complimented her on the award noting the commitment she had obviously put into her studies and wished her well on her industrial placement and future career.
