About the Prize
The Revell Research Systems Prize at the University of Plymouth is currently awarded
each year to the top final year student on a BSc(Hons) degree programme within the
cognate area of Computing.
The prize consists of £100 and a certificate, which is usually presented to the
recipient during the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematic's Award Ceremony.
The prize was established by the Consultancy to mark its 21st year in business
in 2006 and has been awarded every year since.
Our Chairman and Managing Consultant, Alastair Revell, had been significantly involved
in developing and delivering the FdSc Internet Technology in Business programme.
It seemed natural to combine celebrating our business success with the graduation
of the very best student from that programme.
Consequently, the prize was first awarded in the 2006 academic year to the top final
year student on the FdSc Internet Technology in Business programme, which was run
at Exeter Business School. The prize was subsequently transferred to the BSc(Hons)
Computing programme for the 2007 and 2008 academic years. The scope was widened
in 2009 to include the BSc(Hons) Computing group of related programmes.
The University of Plymouth re-organised its Computing related degree programmes
for the start of the 2011 academic year. The Company agreed that the prize should
be awarded to the top final year student within the cognate area of Computing
from 2011-2012 onwards.
