Torgyn Shaikhina, a second year computer and information engineering student at the University of Warwick, has been named the UK’s IT and Computer Science Undergraduate of the Year 2012. Torgyn did Engineering Foundation in Bellerbys College, Cambridge, from January to August 2010, and achieved an average of 96% in ten modules, and proceeded to the University of Warwick to read Computer and Information Engineering.
The competition, organised by TARGETjobs in association with SHL, and sponsored by BT, was launched to find Britain’s most promising IT students. This year’s competition attracted over 5,200 entries from UK universities across 12 categories of awards, and Torgyn was one of nine who reached the finals for the top spot in the IT and Computer Science category. This accolade also wins her a 12-week summer placement with BT Innovate and Design.
Torgyn was presented with her award by the Right Honourable Michael Portillo at an impressive gala event in East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, London, on 13th April 2012.
