About this event

Present around the World (PATW) is the IET’s presentation competition for young engineers and technicians, aged 18 to 26. Applicants may come from all walks of engineering life: students, recent graduates, apprentices and young professionals. The competition is open to both IET members and non-members. Individuals give presentations for 10 minutes on a subject related to engineering and technology and answer questions for five minutes.

The emphasis is on the presenter's presentation skills rather than technical content, enabling competitors at varying levels of their studies or career to participate on an equal footing.  The presentations are given in front of an audience and three judges who will assess and decide on a winner and runner-up.

The competition takes place throughout the world and starts at IET Local Network (LN) level. Winners of all the heats progress to the next stage(s) of the competition giving the same presentation, thereby enhancing their presentation skills and improving their confidence at responding to questions.  There are cash prizes for the winner and runner-up at each stage of the competition, (if more than four competitors are competing), together with a year’s free membership of the IET
