About this event

If you are a student, apprentice, or a young professional aged between 18-26 years, this is your chance to compete for a cash prize and entry into the next round, culminating in a £1000 prize at the international final.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is give a 10-minute presentation on an engineering or technology related subject and be prepared to answer a further 5 minutes of questions. To make it even easier, 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. The presentations are given in front of an audience and judges. There will be three judges who will assess the presentations then decide on a winner and runner-up.

The competition is open to both non-members and members of the IET. The winner and runner-up of each local heat are each entitled to a year's free IET membership as part of their prizes.

There is a maximum number of 8 competitors, so book your place early by pressing the "Register" button or by clicking on the following link:
