Robots win the day for Malik

Success in the Millennium Point Young Innovator Prize has given a St Alban’s Academy student a place on a sponsored undergraduate degree at Birmingham City University.

Malik Sheryar-Karamat competed against three other finalists who all had to make a presentation focusing on science, technology and engineering with themes including nanotechnology, robotics, sustainability, future energy, feeding the world and space exploration.

The 18-year-old winner impressed with his presentation “Will robots save or destroy us?”. He now has a place on a three-year mechanical engineering degree at Birmingham City’s faculty of computing, engineering and the built environment, starting in September.

Malik, who also has a summer placement with Millennium Point, says that he hopes for a career in a science-based subject.
