Nominations now open for a selection of RAEng 2020 awards

Posted on 26/09/2019 by IED

The celebration of engineering excellence is at the heart of the Royal Academy of Engineering's work. The UK produces a large number of engineers whose achievements in the academic and professional practice of engineering have a huge impact on society. The Academy's awards celebrate the significant contribution of engineering to the nation’s wealth, health and wellbeing and recognise engineers at all stages of their careers.

Awards given by the Royal Academy of Engineering seek to recognise and reward the very best of engineering talent from not only across the UK but internationally as well. The Academy seeks to inspire the next generation of engineers by identifying and rewarding possible role models and by demonstrating the relevance of engineering to society today.

Nominations are now open for a selection of the 2020 awards via the online system
