Postgraduate Prizes

There are a number of postgraduate prizes in the Computer Science department for various courses and units:

Tom Gower Fewtrell Prize

The Tom Gower Fewtrell Prize is to be given to the best overall student in the MSc in Computer Science course. Tom studied for a MSc in Computer Science in 1999/2000 and gained a Commendation. He had a great future ahead of him, but sadly his life was cut short and he died in August 2006. He was an intelligent, caring, fun loving person and a wonderful son and brother. His mother and sister have kindly donated this prize to honour his memory.
