The Award is an excellent chance to practice your writing and presentation skills – perfect preparation for a viva or Professional Review. It'll also raise your profile, help promote your university or employer, and give you the opportunity to have your paper published. Competitors can also win a cash prize of up to £250. Plus, should your paper be chosen for the National Competition there's another cash prize and the prestigious Institution Medal for the overall winner.
The competition is open to all ICE graduate and student members with papers on any area of engineering design, research or practice. Papers have to be expertly presented and discussed, as well as innovative and well written.
Competition heats take place across ICE's regions and the winning papers are short-listed by the international judging panel. Three top finalists are then invited to present their papers at the international final.
Graduate members can adapt papers from professional development or Professional Review reports.
Student members can adapt a university project or thesis which should preferably be based on your own work.
The East of England competition is open to all graduate and student members of ICE who live, work or study in the region (Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire including Peterborough, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk).
