For 2016, we are offering prizes in two categories:
Individual award: winner receives £500
Submissions should be in the form of a 2,000 word essay on the topic: “Back to the future…if I knew then what I know now. Six things I’d tell my primary school self about what it means to be an engineer…”
Team award: winning team shares £1,000
Submissions should be in the form of a 1,500 word essay accompanied by illustrative 90 second video on the topic: “Back to the future: hoverboards and humanoids: today’s engineers’ predictions for tomorrow’s technology”
A minimum of two and maximum of four people may enter as a team.
All engineering students – both undergraduate and postgraduate – are welcome to enter either category
Winners will also be invited to present their work at the Engineering Professors’ Council Congress in September 2016.
