The Award recognises a young woman who has firmly established herself as an energetic and technically excellent professional.
The winner will follow in the illustrious footsteps of many other inspiring engineers since the start of the programme in 1978. The IET Young Woman Engineer 2011 will be an able ambassador, representing women in engineering and acting as an inspirational role model.
Two runners-up, one who has followed an apprentice route and one who has followed a graduate route, will be awarded the Mary George Memorial Prize and Women’s Engineering Society prizes respectively.
