Dive Track - Product Design Competition - Win a £5000 Prize!

In 2006-7, the Institution of Engineering and Technology is supporting a one-off product design competition in memory of Penny Glover, a member who died whilst diving. DiveTrack is co-sponsored by the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC).

The competition is to design a device which can be worn by a diver and that both responds to an acoustic signal from a standard echo sounder, and enables the diver to send a signal alerting those on the surface that a problem has occurred.

The competition offers a chance to stretch your creative, design and practical engineering skills, to make a real difference, and to win a £5000 prize! For more information, please email Odette Baker on divetrack@bsac.com or visit the websites of the Institution and BSAC (www.bsac.com).

Present around the World Competition - The Institution's Technical Presentation Prize

By entering the Institution's global presentations competition for Younger Members you could win cash, kudos and international travel! Your presentation can be based on your work, your studies (or any topic that's of relevance to the Institution's diverse range of activities). Contact your local Institution network for further information.
