The EPC Hammermen Student Awards: get involved

Help your students celebrate their success through the coveted EPC Hammermen Student Prize. There is a cash award of up to £500 and FIVE totally free places at the 2023 Engineering Academics Network Annual Congress up for grabs.

The prize celebrates the achievements of different engineering students at the EAN Annual Congress. Following the resounding student success at UWE in 2022, we will be showcasing the Hammermen Awards live as part of Congress 2023: New models. This is the big event in the EAN calendar.

Please encourage your students (undergraduate, postgraduate or KTP associate) to APPLY NOW by submitting a 100-word abstract for a poster on the theme(s) New models: making the world a better place (with a focus on ethics and sustainability). This might be something students are already working on for their final year project, or something from within their engineering studies which has really inspired them.

The deadline for applications (just a 100 word pitch) is Friday 17th March.

The deadline for full poster submission will be Thursday 20th April.

  • 15 longlisted entries will be selected to submit full posters to the Annual Congress. These will be displayed throughout Congress at NMITE’s brand new Skylon camplus.
  • 5 poster finalists will be invited – at the EPC’s expense – to attend the full Congress at NMITE in Hereford and present their posters;
  • At least 1 winner will be announced during the Annual Congress Dinner at the wonderful Left Bank, on Tuesday 13th June. The award and the £500 prize fund will be presented by The Incorporation of Hammermen of Glasgow on the night.

Students: Apply now!
