LU wins Times Higher Education award
The University has won the Departmental ICT Initiative of the Year award at the 2014 Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards – the ‘THELMAs’.
The THELMAs celebrate the sector’s leadership, management, financial and business skills, and showcase the extraordinary innovation, teamwork and commercial acumen of higher education institutions.
The Departmental ICT Initiative of the Year award recognises a team’s innovative use of ICT to improve both its own departmental performance and that of the institution.
The award was presented to Loughborough for an initiative that streamlined the ICT admin and management practices for student placements across the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering (AACME). The system is now being rolled out across the University.
The University’s Centre for Engineering and Design Education (CEDE) worked closely with AACME in the development of the project.
