Sept. 27, 2007 -- Cranfield University Water Processes student Ryland Cairns has been awarded the 'Water Engineer of the Year Award' by The Worshipful Company of Engineers and the International Water Association (IWA) in recognition of his work on drinking water treatment.

Ryland was presented with the award at The Worshipful Company of Engineers Award Livery Dinner, a ceremony for both civilian and military engineers from a variety of disciplines. Ryland received the award for his winning paper and presentation on 'The impacts of organic matter on flocs formed in drinking water treatment' made at the IWA Young Professionals Conference.

Currently studying for a Master of Technology (MTech) degree in Water Processes and sponsored by Severn Trent Water, Ryland said: "This award is a great motivational aid, fuelling my desire to carry on achieving with my research in Water Processes."

The project involved investigation into organic removal efficiencies and floc characteristics of Ferric-NOM flocs from a variety of NOM rich source waters that are treated by Severn Trent Water.

The MTech degree is unique to Cranfield and is now offered in a variety of disciplines. Combining the teaching of technical knowledge with the development of commercially driven research capability, the program meets industry's demand for high caliber professionals with an awareness of management and technical experience.

Cranfield University is one of Western Europe's largest academic centers for strategic and applied research, development and design. It is unique in its entirely postgraduate focus.
