IfM Alumn named Young Design Engineer of the Year

Former Manufacturing Engineering Tripos (MET) student, Christopher Bellamy was named Young Design Engineer of the Year at the British Engineering Excellence Awards.


Christopher was recognised for inventing, designing and developing creative and novel solutions for customer problems while working at Jaguar Land Rover. He pioneered a human-centric design process, and close work with the company’s consumer insight and human factors teams has delivered outstanding results.


Christopher said that the MET course at the IfM played “a pivotal role in inspiring, educating, and leading me in the right direction”.


MET is an option for the final two years of the Cambridge Engineering degree that develops and applies engineering knowledge in a business context. The course prepares students to be leaders of business and technology firms, providing a thorough grounding in management and manufacturing technologies, as well as an understanding of the full range of industrial activities.
