Having originally joined Leonardo as an apprentice, Allan graduated with a First Class Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering. At the ceremony, he was awarded with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Prize and the University Class Medal. The IET prize is made all the more prestigious by the fact that only one of these prizes is allocated to each University.
The annual IET Prize is awarded to outstanding students who are undergoing or have completed a course of study which has been accredited by the IET. Prize winners are nominated by each approved university on the basis of having shown distinction in a specified stage of a course leading to the award of a first class degree. One nomination is available per IET accredited university.
In addition, the Class Medal is only given to those who demonstrate exceptional achievements on their individual Programme of Study.
Responding to Allan’s awards, Robert Mountford, Mechanical Engineering Lead at Leonardo, said: "Allan Speed is an example of what we hope to achieve from our apprenticeship schemes. He has grown with the company and is now a highly regarded mechanical engineer. The apprenticeship gives these guys an excellent all round understanding of what we do with regard to products, skills and competencies. This allows the individual to develop on the job while gaining the relevant qualifications for their chosen profession. Mechanical Engineering has found that 'growing our own' through graduates and apprentices is the best way to recruit for the future. Allan is now going on to a Masters programme that will accelerate him to his next goal of becoming a Chartered Engineer with the IMechE."
Allan Colquhoun, Leonardo's University Liaison and Emerging Technologies Manager, said: "Allan has put in a tremendous amount of hard work, with more to come for his Masters in Advanced Mechanical Engineering at Heriot Watt University."
