The BGA IMechE joint Student Prize 2022 winner is Kieran Brothwood from Sunderland University for his MEng project:

"Improve Pitch Error Results From 5-axis Machined Gears"

The judging panel commented:

"An interesting and thorough engineering project and report. The conclusion of returning the rotational axis only to gain most of the benefits is a classic example of good engineering compromise."

"A focused report on a specific problem. Showed good understanding of manufacturing & inspection techniques. Demonstrated experimental approach, showing objectives and methods."

"A well-presented report showing good understanding of a range of technical skills needed to address a really challenging problem. A sensible solution is proposed but more work is needed to understand the root cause of the characteristic. Excellent work."

Kieran has been invited to present his paper the the leading gear experts in the UK at GEARS 2023 in November 2023.
