Ubi-Tech (3R) Ltd, leading providers of telecommunications training has announced Thomas Spencer as award winner of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and Ubi-Tech ‘student of the year’ award 2020. Presented by Professor Robert Lucas-Gardiner at the University of Wolverhampton’s Graduation Ceremony, held at the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton, Thomas collected his award for ‘outstanding achievement’ along with 37 graduates from the class of 2020 who celebrated their academic success with friends, family, representatives from their Armed Forces Corps and the Ubi-Tech team.
“I am delighted to receive the commendation at the graduation ceremony, very much unexpected though it was. Thank you to the IET for the award and to Ubi-Tech for delivering an excellent course. I’d recommend anyone potentially looking at the qualification to go for it; although it’s challenging, the feeling once you’ve submitted your essays and passed the course is extremely rewarding. Completing the PG Cert has also provided me with both the motivation and the skill set to pursue my studies with further qualifications in telecommunications, which I am currently undertaking,” Thomas Spencer, Ubi-Tech 2020 ‘student of the year’.
Ubi-Tech provides telecommunication professionals with a diverse training and development portfolio which meets the needs of the telecoms industry. Their portfolio includes the University of Wolverhampton accredited Post Graduate Certificate in Wireless Communications which is widely recognised by telecommunication and defence industries.
“As a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology it was my pleasure to award the prize on behalf of Ubi-Tech and the IET to Thomas Spencer immediately after receiving his Graduation Certificate from the Vice-Chancellor. As the External Examiner for the level 7 Post Graduate Certificate I have, over the many years marked many hundreds of assignments, the vast majority are of a very high standard and it is a pleasure to read through them and allocate the appropriate marks. The three assignments that the students submit cover a suite of technologies and subjects and of the approximately 100 (3×33) I mark per year 70% are of a very high standard across the board, perhaps another 25% on top of that are excellent and the remainder (5%) are outstanding. Within that 5% one or two students go the extra mile and write with confidence, with fluency, having researched well and with an excellent knowledge base indicative of an intense desire to strive and do their very best. Additionally, when Turnitin performs similarity indexing etcetera it is a rarity to see <5% across all three subjects; this is a clear indication of original thought and shows me that the student has spent a great deal of time, effort and thought into putting the assignments together.
Thomas Spencer is one of the students that falls nicely into the upper 5% bracket, and his exemplary work was a pleasure to read. It was decided that the Institute of Engineering and Technology would award a prize to the engineering student who met the highest level and would be rewarded on the graduation platform with a certificate jointly awarded by the IET and Ubi-Tech (3R) Ltd,” Professor Robert Lucas-Gardiner, Professor of Mobile and Wireless Systems, External Examiner for Ubi-Tech (3R) Ltd.
