What is the IET On Campus Group of the Year Award?

IET On Campus student groups are helping us to engineer a better world by inspiring students at universities all around the globe to pursue a career in engineering and technology and also to engage with the IET throughout their time at university.

The IET On Campus Group of the Year Award is our way of recognising and rewarding the IET On Campus student group that has gone above and beyond the rest between 1 September 2016 and 1 August 2017.

We’ve put together our criteria for the IET On Campus Group of the Year Award, which contains four main categories:

  • activities, events and student engagement
  • the correct use of IET On Campus branding
  • student recruitment and retention
  • succession planning for the running of the group.

We’re asking you to let us know how your IET On Campus group has met these criteria and why you deserve this prestigious award.
