Colin Harwood has been awarded the 2016 Voorhees-Large Prize for his dissertation submitted for his Masters in Transport Planning and Management course under the supervision of Dr Enrica Papa.
The Voorhees-Large Prize, which is worth £500, is awarded by the Brian Large Bursary Fund for the best dissertation submitted by a UK resident studying for a Transport Masters.
On being told about his award, Colin Harwood said: “I am delighted to have won the Voorhees-Large Prize 2016. It will be an honour to receive this and an extra reward for the hard work that went into completing my Masters. I would like to thank my supervisors at the University of Westminster for their support. I hope that, through my research, I have made a small contribution to this evaluation and research gap.”
His dissertation supervisor, Dr Enrica Papa, commented on her former student’s work: “The choice of subject made Colin’s study inherently original and creative. His innovative methodology drew on a wide range of source material and gave a new use to surveys collected by TRICS. The work also provided findings of use to practitioners evaluating and preparing Transport Assessments.”
