Kasia Wrzesinska wins the McBride Prize from the Energy Institute

Tetra Tech’s Kasia Wrzesinska, Mechanical Engineer in the Belfast M&E team has won the University of Ulster Student Award Energy Institute McBride Prize. 

Kasia has been recognised for her outstanding MSc dissertation thesis and has been awarded a distinguished Student Prize from the Energy Institute.

The thesis formed part of her Masters (Msc) in Renewable Energy and Energy Management, which she has been studying for alongside her role at Tetra Tech. The thesis involved an assessment and evaluation of the most effective combination of energy efficient design features for educational buildings in the UK. Our flexible way of working model allows our colleagues to work around study commitments to benefit their personal and professional development.

The work included a project focusing on utilising Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) simulations to consider a range of options for energy efficient design.

Tetra Tech’s Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) team will now also be using this research as part of the review of energy strategies for future education projects.  Enabling Tetra Tech to streamline future educational project developments benefitting both client and company alike through a better understanding of renewable energy integration and improved educational facilities.

Kasia commented: “I am truly honoured to receive the award and I would like to thank the M&E team that provided the support throughout my studies.”

Eddie Robinson, Associate Director of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP)commented: “Huge congratulations to Kasia for this achievement, her work will be really influential in the solutions we provide for our education clients in the future”
