Natural Scientist student in finals of national award
Jenny Cox, a third year Natural Scientist student, has won her regional event of the EDT Contribution to the Business Award for her project work with Centrica.
On Wednesday 26th June 2013 she will showcase the project, along with the seven other regional winners, in the national finals at the Arup in London. Her project which involved programming a database, has led to direct improvements in reporting and efficiency, which translates into a tangible cost-saving for the company. The reporting combines historic data with daily power station reports in an efficient and user friendly fashion and has already increased forecasting accuracy. As little as one per cent change from the forecast can cost the company millions of pounds.
