About this event

Do you want to feel inspired?

Come and hear our Railway Young Professional speakers give their short presentations and demonstrate their presentation skills by presenting to a panel of expert judges on a technical subject of their choice.

Anyone may attend as part of the audience so if you have an interest in railway engineering and technology come along and support the event.

This offers Young Professionals the opportunity to showcase their presentation skills on a railway technical topic of their choosing, to win a cash prize.

The finalists will be added soon with their abstract and a biography.

This is a great opportunity to meet members of the engineering community and learn more about the IET Railway Technical and Professional Network.

Abstracts and papers should be on a subject related to Railway engineering and technology and it is perfectly acceptable to use your final year project presentation, a presentation from your graduate scheme or any other presentation which you already have, however the topic should be appropriate to the intended audience of students and young professionals.
