The Karen Burt Memorial Award is now open for nominations. The award is made annually by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to the best recently registered female Chartered Engineer in the disciplines of engineering, applied science and IT.
The award highlights the importance of professional registration and recognises the candidate's excellence and potential in the practice of engineering, as well as offering recognition to their contributions to the promotion of the engineering profession. The winning candidate is awarded a prize of £1,000.
Professional engineering institutions are invited to nominate one of their members, and the winners and runners up will be selected by a WES panel based on further information provided by the candidate in their application.
The deadline to nominate a female Chartered Engineer registered between 1 March 2022 to 28 February 2023, is 30 June 2023.
