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 or visit the websites of the Institution and BSAC (

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).
