ECS students in Malaysia receive Lloyd’s Register Foundation scholarships
The top three performing students from Year One, Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus (USMC) have each been awarded prestigious Lloyd’s Register Foundation scholarships.
Receiving these industry-sponsored scholarships in Electrical and Electronic Engineering for students at its Malaysian campus is a first for the University. In 2013, the Lloyd’s Register Foundation inaugurated scholarships for Southampton’s Mechanical Engineering students based in Malaysia.
Mark Darley, South Asia Area Manager of Lloyd’s Register, presented the scholarships to Stephen Chai Ming Han, (20), Aaron Pang Ken Soon, (20), and Yiqian Hui (20) following their excellent performance in both academic and personal aspects throughout their first year. The scholarships cover each scholar’s tuition and academic fees for the academic year.
A further seven students at Southampton’s Malaysia Campus were also honoured with University of Southampton ‘Top Achiever Awards’, for achieving three A* or higher grades in their A levels. These students – Aaron Teo Yii How, Aastik Malhotra, Ho You Wei, Lim Jin Wei, Ng Guo Hseng, Tan Kim Meng Ronson and Teh Jin Xuan – each received 100% scholarships from the University of Southampton, to cover their tuition and academic fees in their first year of study.
Professor John McBride, Chief Executive Officer, University of Southampton Malaysia Campus, said: “A big congratulations to our students for their achievement in being awarded these scholarships and to the Lloyd’s Register Foundation for their generosity and for maintaining their bond with us. These scholarships will give students, who have the aptitude and enthusiasm, an opportunity to maximise their potential and create the pathways to pursue their dreams."
Mark Darley, South Asia Area Manager of Lloyd’s Register, commented: “We congratulate each recipient of these scholarships offered by the Lloyd’s Register Foundation which allows these deserving students the opportunity to focus on developing their skills and preparing for their careers. We look forward to continuing our ties with the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus and to providing continued support for tomorrow’s engineers to enter the workforce and redefine the industry through their ingenuity."
