DEC Tutor Wins Institute of Civil Engineering Award
Daniel McDonagh, Design, Engineer, Construct tutor at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form, has been awarded an ICE200 Medal at the annual ICE (Institute of Civil Engineering) North West Awards – and is the first non-engineer to receive it!
The award is in recognition of his continuing efforts to promote civil engineering with the Manchester Branch Committee, working with various engineering institutions and organisations involved in the built environment. Daniel has worked extensively on the DEC curriculum, collaborations with engineering partners and with Class of Your Own and DEC in Schools to name a few, helping to provide young people with not only the skills to enter top engineering jobs but also with real life business links and experience to facilitate this further.
Daniel received his award at a glitzy ceremony at the prestigious Titanic Hotel in Liverpool. He said: “I’m very proud to receive this ICE200 Medal for Civil Engineering. I’m told I’m the first non-engineer to receive it! I want to share this with everyone at St Ambrose Barlow, ICE North West, our many partners and DEC in Schools.”
Civic Engineers tweeted: “Congratulations to Daniel McDonagh from St Ambrose Barlow for this fantastic achievement - a school we are proud to work with to help develop future talent.”
Daniel responded: “We are very proud to work with Civic Engineers. Thank you for all your support with Level 3 DEC in Schools and for the work experience opportunities at your fantastic Manchester offices for our Sixth Form students. We look forward to more future collaborations.”
