Applications for the annual Karen Burt Memorial Award, presented by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), are now open. The winner will be awarded £1,000.
The award will be presented to the best newly Chartered female engineer who has demonstrated her excellence and potential in the practice of engineering. It both highlights the contribution of women engineers to the promotion of the engineering profession and recognises the importance of professional engineering registration.
Female engineers who achieved Chartered Engineer (CEng) status between 1 March 2020 and the closing date of 30 June 2021 are eligible for nomination by their professional engineering institution (PEI). PEIs are invited to nominate one member, who they feel best fits the award criteria, by this deadline.
The criteria, application forms and further information are available on the WES website.
