The awards recognise outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate IT students within the UK, and were created in 2015 by The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists Charity (WCIT Charity).

Andreea, and joint winner Joanna Joss (of Brunel University, London) are the first female winners of this award.

Each finalist was presented with a cheque and certificate by the City of London Alderman Sheriff, Peter Estlin.
