To celebrate UCC 150 the Association established this prize.

  • In the event of equal marks being obtained by two or more students an interview will be held. The membership of the interview board will be determined by the President.
  • The name of the winner will be inscribed on a commemorative plaque held in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
