This second year of the IET India Scholarship Award drew participation from close to 4,000 students across India. The competition was organised in four levels, from eligibility to theoretical and practical engineering case resolutions. The focus for the applicants was to demonstrate economically, socially and technologically viable ideas to resolve challenges around society. Ten national finalists, who were chosen for the last round, were tested for technical knowhow, problem solving capabilities, as well as leadership skills.
Speaking at the ceremony, Shekhar Sanyal from IET India said: “India, with its abundant quality engineering talent, has become a hub of innovation over the last few years. Engineers play a critical part in our lives and we from the IET are committed towards creating platforms to encourage them to showcase their innovative ideas and solutions.
