Emerging engineers award

Emerging engineers award

This competition is held every year to promote and reward excellent communication of civil engineering issues and ideas.

Graduate and student members can submit papers on any topic related to civil engineering. Entries can be adapted from undergraduate research papers, university projects, professional development or professional review reports. It's preferable, but not compulsory, for entries to be based on the applicant’s own work.

The competition is open to all graduate and student members of ICE who live, work or study in the East of England (Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire including Peterborough, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk).

Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners, and the overall regional winner will be considered for a place in the national final.
