St Andrews student wins Young Software Engineer of the Year Award 2020


St Andrews University student, Ryan Wilson, has been named Young Software Engineer of the Year 2020, having developed a tool that helps check a parallel program for flaws when running on a system with so-called weak memory consistency. The tool is applicable to almost all modern computers and can analyse and check critical systems for flaws, such as those running nuclear power plants, making them much safer.

Second place was won by Daniella Ivanova from University of Glasgow; Konrad Dryja, from Aberdeen University, was also recognised, with Craig Pirie of Robert Gordon University winning The Best Engineering Project Award.

CEO Jane Morrison-Ross said "All of this year’s winners and runners up have demonstrated not only great ability to develop novel ideas, but they are also applicable in the real world, bringing tangible benefits to many industries in the future."

A huge thank you to our YSE sponsors this year: Skills Development Scotland, Sopra Steria, BCS, Edge Testing Solutions, Leidos and Kal.
