Servelec Controls has continued to support the next generation of Software Engineers by sponsoring a prestigious prize at Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University. The Servelec Controls Award is presented to the Software Engineering student with the Best Honours Project at the University’s School of Computing Science and Digital Media.
Scott Adams, from Inverurie, developed a fully responsive trading website that allows members of his Scout Group to swap or buy items, services and events through his ‘Ping It’ trading platform. Scott is heavily involved with volunteering at both the Inverurie Merlin Scout Group and the Gordon Network – the section of the Scouts Association for 18-25 year olds.
Ronald Holden, Divisional Director of Servelec Controls’ Aberdeen office, was delighted to once again be supporting the award, commenting “we have supported the University for a number of years and it’s fantastic to see the high calibre of the students graduating from the School of Computing Science and Digital Media, and the quality of their final year projects”.
Scott has been involved with the Scouts for 16 years and credits the Scouts themselves for coming up with idea; “I have been a Cub, Scout, Explorer, Networker and now Leader at Inverurie so the group and the movement means a lot to me personally. I wanted to give something back to them and have developed their idea of having a place to swap items.”
The 23 year old received his award on 3rd July, a week before graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science.
Servelec has sponsored the award for four years, whilst working with the University to provide opportunities for placement students and graduates in Servelec’s Real Time Information Centre of Excellence in Aberdeen’s Technology Centre.
