What is the Graduate and Student Papers Competition?
The Graduate and Student Papers Competition (GSPC) was first introduced in 1951 as the “Institution Medal and Premium (Local Associations) Competition”. The competition is open to all ICE Graduate and Student members with papers on engineering design, research or practice. In addition to rewarding those papers that are innovative and exceptionally written, they also have to be expertly presented and discussed.
Heats initially take place across the ICE Regions with the winning papers being forwarded to the GSPC judging panel. At the heats, and at the final, the authors give presentations of their papers followed by lively question and answer sessions. From the year’s regional winning papers, three finalists are shortlisted to present their papers at the final.
