The celebration of engineering excellence is key to demonstrating the relevance of engineering to society today and inspiring the next generation of engineers.

The Academy’s 'Strategy 2020 - 2025: engineering for a sustainable society and inclusive economy' recognises the importance of a diverse and inclusive engineering community in helping drive excellence in engineering innovation for social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Showcasing the variety and diversity of talent that supports UK engineering is therefore key to the Academy prizes and medals and nominations from any groups currently underrepresented in engineering are encouraged.

Several Academy prizes and medals for 2022 are now open for nominations:

  • Prince Philip Medal: Open to an engineer of any nationality for exceptional contributions to engineering through practice, management or education.  
  • RAEng Engineers Trust Young Engineer of the Year: A £3,000 prize for early career UK engineers, supported by the Worshipful Company of Engineers.
    • The Sir George Macfarlane Medal will be awarded to the overall winner
  • Rooke Award: For the public promotion of engineering by an individual or small team

The closing date for nominations is 5pm on Friday 5 November.

RAEng encourages nominations from across the entire engineering community, as the opportunity to nominate is open to anyone who wishes to highlight contributions to engineering excellence.

Find more information about RAEng awards and prizes, and a link to their online nominations system, on the RAEng website.
