The 2022 New Holland Agriculture trophy celebrates the outstanding academic achievements of a Harper Adams Agricultural Engineering graduate. This year the award went to BEng (Hons) Agricultural Engineering graduate George Smith, 24, from Kidlington in Oxfordshire.
Mr Smith was presented with his prize at the Harper Adams graduation ceremony in early Autumn, by New Holland harvester area sales manager Steve Belcher.
Senior engineering lecturer at Harper Adams, Graham Higginson said: “George achieved outstanding marks across the suite of modules studied and securing the New Holland Agriculture Trophy recognises his performance not only in his academic studies, but also his wider success – such as the development of products which are currently available across Europe during his placement year with a manufacturer of agricultural and industrial materials.
“The award of the New Holland Agriculture Trophy reinforces the close working relationship between Harper Adams University and New Holland, who are a major employer of Harper Adams University placement students as well as graduates.”
Pat Smith, UK & ROI business director for New Holland Agriculture, said: “New Holland Agriculture congratulates George Smith on his well-deserved engineering award win. We are proud to support Harper Adams University who are successfully educating the agricultural ambassadors of the future.”
